The 29-year-old captain of the German national team already played for the Lakers in the 2020/21 season and is now returning to superstar LeBron James’ side. “Honored to play for the @Lakers. Can’t wait to get started!” Schroeder wrote on Instagram. Last year didn’t feel right. He felt misunderstood and no one really knew the story. He now returns to the biggest organization to make everything right. “I give everything I have every single day!!”
The point guard last played for the Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics, his contract expired at the end of last season. “My advisor is already doing his job, he’s on the phone with all the teams.
