NBA Trade Rumors: Will Atlanta Hawks Give Up Dennis Schroder To Utah Jazz?
More trade rumors are emerging since the NBA season is on the way. One of the recent NBA rumors evolved about Dennis Schroder of the Atlanta Hawks. Read on for more details.
According to Yibada, the Atlanta Hawks have always exhibited best teamwork in the NBA league, under the guidance of Coach Mike Budenholzer. However, even a successful team could face some drawbacks when it loses a valuable player like Schroder.
In an interview with German magazine Bild, Schroder revealed that his main “goal is to start as point guard.” It clearly expressed that he wishes to start over Jeff Teague. He also said that the All-Star Teague helped him a lot. It seems that Teague stands as a block in the path of Schroder’s goal. However, there is no ill-feeling between the two players.
Schroder further added that the “Hawks are a great team. He would be working hard patiently to get his opportunities. He also expressed that he would look for other opportunities if he is not given the starter position.
The starting guard position of the Utah Jazz is actually vacant due to Dante Exum’s offseason injury. SLC Dunk reported that players such as Darren Collison, George Hill, and Schroder are on the trade list to fill the Utah Jazz’s starting point guard position. As per Schroder’s statement, it seems that he could be a possible as well as an attractive trade option.
Dante Exum, Schroder, and Burke would be the perfect choice for the point guard role, according to one of the fans of SLC Dunk, a Utah Jazz community. The fan further added that Schroder as the starter, Exum as the point guard defense, and Burke as the last reserve, would work greatly. However, the fan also feels that it is doubtful whether Hawks would give up Schroeder.
Let us wait and see whether the Atlanta Hawks trades Schroder to Utah Jazz, or not. However, it is possible, as the German point guard himself has declared that he would consider other opportunities when he is not given the starter position in the Hawks.
