Previous Los Angeles Lakers point guard Dennis Schroder is signing a short-term agreement with the Boston Celtics.
Dennis Schroder was confident he would receive a huge deal from a team in complimentary agency this offseason, given the amount of companies in need of a point player. Unfortunately for him, the marketplace dried up on him after Lonzo Ball and Kyle Lowry flew off the board. Now, Schroder has actually discovered a new group on the short-term.
