It seems as though the Chicago Bulls are already coming up with a backup plan if they are unable to sign Lonzo Ball this summer. Evan Massey of NBA Analysis Network reports that the Bulls’ front office is eyeing Los Angeles Lakers’ point guard Dennis Schröder.

Schröder recently turned down a four-year, $84 million extension from the Lakers and it looks like he will test the waters in free agency.

Schröder was the 17th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. He was selected by the Atlanta Hawks. He spent five seasons with Atlanta before moving on to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Schröder has primarily served as a backup throughout his career, though he has started in 43 games while averaging 15.4 PPG, 4.9 APG, 1.2 SPG, and 3.5 RPG for the Lakers this season. Schröder is shooting 43% from the field and 31% from downtown.

Schröder is a pesky defender who has a knack for getting into passing lanes and stealing the ball. He also possesses above-average playmaking abilities. Pairing him with NBA All-Star Zach LaVine wouldn’t be a bad choice, but the majority of Bulls fans are hoping for a bigger splash to help this team compete in the future.
