However, he is currently performing on what might be his biggest and most important stage yet.
Schroder is overseas playing for his German national team in the EuroBasket tournament.
Germany is doing quite well in the games and is the only undefeated team at the moment despite the fact that they are ranked 11th in the world and are playing against some squads that are considered better.
Quite a bold step for Dennis Schroder to play in this @EuroBasket without an NBA contract in hand … but there's a rising buzz in league circles about his job prospects. Schroder will almost certainly have a new team by month's end after helping host Germany make the semifinals.

Schroder has a lot riding on these games.
Marc Stein noted that he is playing at EuroBasket without a clear path forward in the NBA.
Schroder currently doesn’t have an NBA contract signed and set but, as Stein says, “there’s a rising buzz in league circles about his job prospects.”
“Schroder will almost certainly have a new team by month’s end after helping host Germany make the semifinals,” Stein said.
Schroder Shooting His Shot
Over the last few years, Schroder has been a part of the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, and Houston Rockets.
Before that, he was best known for his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Atlanta Hawks.
The truth is that Schroder hasn’t fit well on any team in some time.
But he is obviously a talented player and he’s clearly ready to perform, he just needs the right team that can use his skill sets and let him shine as he is doing overseas right now.
Will he return to LA, as some have speculated, or will he forge a path with a new team?
We don’t know where he will land but chances are high that Schroder will be somewhere in the league when the season tips off next month.
