Los Angeles Lakers goalkeeper Dennis Schroeder wants a good salary when he attacks a free agency this summer.
Teams may not agree to his payment.
“Dennis Schroeder has made it very clear: he wants $ 100-120 million, maybe he’ll get it – and that amount of insurance isn’t currently insured in the normal market,” said Armin Andres, vice-president of the German Basketball Federation.

When the Lakers bought Schroeder from the Thunder last season, they thought LeBron James and Anthony Davis had a defender to help them return to the NBA Finals. The 27-year-old German has averaged 15.4 points and 5.8 assists per game against them this season, but struggled when it was crucial.
In the playoffs, Schroeder failed to strengthen in the absence of Anthony Davis in removing the first-round game from the hands of the Phoenix Suns. He didn’t score at all in Game 4. In Game 5, he scored just eight points and followed a bad result. Schroeder’s playoff stats have been a minor dive since his struggles. He averaged 14.3 points and just 2.8 assists this season, but was ineffective.
Late this season, the Lakers initially offered Schroeder a $ 84 million contract to stay in Los Angeles for four years, but he turned it down.
It’s clear that Schroeder sees himself as worth more than that – although some in the Lakers camp disagree.
“I don’t think he’s a Laker,” franchise legend Magic Johnson said after he was knocked out of the LA playoffs. “It simply came to my notice then. I don’t know if they will re-sign it or not. I don’t think it gives us the winning mentality and attitude we need.
“He had the opportunity to show it in this series. And for me, he failed in this series. “
This means that Schroeder will hit the free agency for the first time. Before being traded to the Thunder in 2018, Schroeder signed a four-year, $ 70 million contract as a member of the Atlanta Hawks.
