Lakers set to acquire Dennis Schroder from Thunder for NBA Draft pick

The Los Angeles Lakers on the brink of a significant trade as they seek to defend their NBA championship.

The Lakers are set to acquire guard Dennis Schroder from the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday when trades can be completed, according to multiple reports. The Thunder would receive the No. 28 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, which is set for Wednesday. Danny Green has also been involved in the trade talks as a possibility to go to the Thunder, per reports.

Schroder, 27, averaged 18.9 points, four assists, and 3.6 rebounds per game last season for the Thunder while shooting a career-best 46.9 percent from the field and a career-best 38.5 percent from 3-point range.

The Lakers are favorites to repeat after LeBron James and Anthony Davis led them to their first title in a decade. Davis can opt-out of his contract and enter free agency, but he’s expected to remain with the Lakers.

Oklahoma City is entering a rebuild after Billy Donovan’s departure for the Chicago Bulls. Trade rumors have been swirling around Chris Paul, with The Post reporting the Knicks’ interest in the veteran point guard. The Phoenix Suns have reportedly been engaged in trade talks with the Thunder centered around Paul.
