Dennis Schroder to the Bucks? Nein, Danke
Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder might be the only visiting player who lists Milwaukee as his favorite road city. This isn’t surprising though. Schroder is a native of Germany, and he enjoys all of the German influence around the city of Milwaukee. Therefore, no one should be surprised he listed Milwaukee as a team he would like to play for if the Hawks plan on tanking. Just because the young point guard enjoys the city, it doesn’t mean the team wants him.

From a player, Schroder has some likable qualities that would work with Milwaukee’s roster. He can get to the basket with the best of them and averaged over six assists per game in the last two seasons. He also has great length as a decent size point guard at 6’1. But there are way more red flags than green flags including the Bucks’ top target at head coach didn’t really see eye-to-eye with him.
Schroder could be German for Eric Bledsoe. He has some serious issues that almost are worse than what Bledsoe brought with him to Milwaukee. He cannot shoot the basketball worth shit. Schroder dipped under30 percent from three last seasons. Like Bledsoe, he’s a usage monster. Schroder averaged over 15 shots per game in the last two seasons. And before we even get into the personal issues, the Hawks point guard sported a defensive rating of 113. That’s well-below average for a starter.
The personal issues are also there for him. He’s not been a popular player with his teammates. Schroder got himself in a nightclub fight that left him basically suspended for the rest of the season. Additionally, he missed meetings or showed up late to practice. Dude is a problem child, and the last type of player the Bucks need to add to their roster.
Whether it’s in English or German, no thanks Dennis.
