   2017 NBA Manifesto

Dennis Schroder
PG, 6’1, 172lbs, 23 years old, 4 years of experience

With the keys for the first time, it was an up and down year for Schroder. Inefficient scoring punctuated by far too many mid-range pull-ups, but with improved finishing at the rim, some good defensive pressure full of energy and missed spots, all layered in inconsistency. At his core, he remains a slasher and defender, who needs to keep improving his finishing ability and developing that which his slashing avails him (pull-ups, kick-outs, welcoming contact), but the potential is there even if the results only half are so far. Certainly, Schroder would benefit greatly from not having to share so big of a load of the offence in the near future.

Player Plan: Begins four year, $62 million extension next year, paying an even $15.5 mil per annum. Keep indefinitely.

   The NBA's middle class: where fringe stars now hang out

[...] But despite this more conservative spending, the rookie scale, maximum salary and minimum salary amounts continue to increase year-by-year, as do the salary cap itself and the value of the mid-level and bi-annual exceptions. Players still worthy of the max still get it -- there just happened to not be too many candidates this season -- and countless others still get the minimum. The rookie scale is still mostly an automatic 120 percent affair, with only Dennis Schroeder and Andre Roberson receiving less than that this season, and roughly the same proportion of available exception money is being used now as it was there.

   How are players sent to the D-League this season progressing?

Atlanta - Dennis Schroeder: In six games on assignment, Schroeder posted 17.0 points, 6.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game, shooting 48% on the floor. And for the most part, he looked better than those numbers. Still only 20, Schroeder inevitably made some mistakes, as evidence by the 3.7 turnovers a contest, but he also showed a great handle, good court vision, a mostly high IQ, the ability to split and break down a defense, and some shot making talent of his own. There is a lot to like.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 13th November 2017

With a 2-16 shooting effort, Schroder recorded only 18.9 fantasy points in his last game, but over the previous seven, he averaged 35.7. Shouldering the offensive burden, Schroder is allowed to dominate the ball and is constantly attacking, recording career highs in every major category. Steph Curry, Damian Lillard and John Wall form a top tier in tonight’s slate at point guard in terms of both cost and production, but Schroder is top of the second tier. [Note also that Curry might miss the game due to injury, or at least be hobbled. If you’re picking from the top tier, pick Lillard]
