Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder has intimated that he'd like to meet with the Hawks front office to discuss his future which seems to highly suggest he'd like a trade to a contending team.

 

The speedy 24-year-old German even had a couple of teams in mind, when talking with reporters at a press conference for the German Basketball Federation (DBB).

[The Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers] are the two teams where you can say the organization is going in the right direction.

Schroder's game could be complementary to the Pacers' Victor Oladipo and Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, especially in transition and/or use of a break-neck pace of play. The German still needs to improve his general scoring efficiency to be a lead guard for a contender.

 

Were the team to draft number one overall and receive Deandre Ayton, which they stand a strong chance to do given their record in 2017-18, it would behoove himself and the team to keep him in the fold.

 

Either way, at his three remaining years and just $46.5 million, the Hawks or any team that trades for him would be getting strong value for a player heading into his prime.
