Dennis Schröder

Dennis Schröder (ATL) – “Shredder” | “The Menace” nike

ATL Point Guard: 6’1, 168 lbs; 5th year, Germany 

NBA Role: two-way PG

Dennis Schröder has turned the corner as Coach Mike Budenholzer’s starting PG; an emerging, two-way playmaker, Dennis seamlessly merges pace + efficiency on a nightly basis; quick, smart and heady – shot creator w/ a knack for getting in the lane and using bursts of speed to cause nightmares for defenders; incredible first step – can get by almost anyone on the perimeter if motivated to do so – usually saves his speed til something opens up; crosses over like a dude from the 70s – no pizzazz, will get to whatever spot he wants before floating it up to the rim – long arms allow for beautiful, unchanged finishes; Schröder’s a small guard but slides his feet & stays active in passing lanes; would benefit from adding strength; jump shot has too low of a release point, sometimes leads to inconsistency from downtown; still working on valuing possessions, managing late game offense; at age 23, is Dennis ready to lead ATL to playoff success?*
