    Probably not right away. He’s basically another Westbrook coming off the bench. That speed and pace could wear teams down.

    Another nice move by Presti... Everyone was sure he was gonna use the stretch provision and instead he comes up with a sixth man with 2 years of experience as starting point guard for Atlanta....Sure Schroder has had some issues but this was really a solid move...

    That was Trammels opinion and I hope he's wrong. The Thunder could use a 1st rate player like Schroder. I just heard on the News9 that Westbrook is Schroders favorite player so maybe there's hope for him staying.

    The Thunder did two things with this trade. First, they found a potentially productive 6th man and backup point guard. Second, they got rid of the possibility of having Melo's dead salary on the books for three years. The only way this goes bad is if Schroder really fails and the Thunder get stuck with him.

    One other thing about Dennis Schroder is that he has a pending felony aggravated battery charge against him currently. If he lost the case, he could actually be deported and the Thunder would be off the hook for his salary... which is far better than waiving Melo and having his dead salary on the books for three years. I can't speak to the case against Schroder since I haven't researched it much, but it actually sounds pretty messed up.

    The basic allegation is Shroder and his friends (business partners?) beat a guy up for leaving bad reviews about his hookah bar. They beat him so bad that they tore ligaments in the guy's legs.

    Honestly the chances of him going to jail is actually pretty decent. Unless of course money reasons keep him out.

    Presti could be out here playing 12-D chess if he made this trade to void the contract due to prison time. That would be hilarious and next level GM material.

    really? cause last I saw he was still just a misdemeanor offense... there was an article I remember back in march that someone somewhere wanted it to be a upgraded to a felony, but haven't seen anything else on it since then. If you saw something I missed, please post reference to it, because I would like to see it

    Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Schröder was arrested early Friday morning on a single charge of misdemeanor battery, according to Dekalb County court records.

    Nothing was upgraded to a felony. Change of scenery, a town like OKC may give him the energy necessary to take advantage of a second chance to redeem himself.

    Hey call the law that guy has a joint, Put him in the slammer for about 10 years so he can learn his lesson. Or maybe just give the guy life without parole. Don't think it can't happen? Think again

    Take a closer look at those small market cities (Memphis, NOLA, OKC & SLC); OKC appears to be demographically stable; yet we were the last small market NBA city to join the Association:

    Presti still not through. Picked up Nadar from Boston for Rodney Purvis. Nadar was rookie of the year in the d league a couple years ago. Wing man. Effective post Melo departure

    PG giving us 3 years is allowing Presti to think further than 1 step ahead. He can mold the team for the next few years, having that security is huge.

    Adding in Adams and Grant for three seasons and Roberson for two seasons, that is a pretty good timeline to get stuff figured out by him.
