Oklahoma City Thunder: 3 Reasons Dennis Schröder Is a Perfect Fit

Oklahoma City Finally Has a Legitimate No. 3 Threat That Fits

Carmelo Anthony was expected to be the No. 3 scoring threat that the Thunder needed to compete with the Golden State Warriors. Unfortunately, Anthony was unable to fit alongside George and Westbrook. He simply was not the answer or a good running mate for the two stars.

Schroder, on the other hand, is exactly what the doctor ordered as a No. 3 scoring threat.

Last season with the Hawks, Schroder showed off a much-improved offensive game. He averaged 19.4 points per game as we mentioned earlier in the article and his passing was impressive as well. Playing alongside George and Westbrook, Schroder will have a much easier task against opposing defenses.

If the Thunder are going to compete against the Warriors, Houston Rockets, and Los Angeles Lakers, they are going to need Schroder to play a huge role. He is more than capable of handling that kind of pressure.

Oklahoma City has to be happy about their new guard and the Thunder are a perfect fit for him. His numbers may go down a bit, but only because he isn’t the No. 1 scorer and playmaker on the roster anymore.

Schroder will be allowed to play his game and not worry about being the focal point of the defense, which should translate to major success.
