What does Dennis Schroder’s role look like?

One of the biggest storylines of the NBA offseason was the contract conundrum of Schroder.

There were reports of Dennis Schroder being offered a four-year, $84 million extension last season, which he would pass on to test free agency.

The veteran point guard would fail to secure the contract he desired in free agency, forcing him to sign a one-year deal with the Boston Celtics this offseason.

Schroder replaces Walker at the point guard position in Boston, and it remains to be seen what his role looks like.

Or will he run the offense when Tatum or Brown isn’t on the court? Once the season gets underway, we should get a better grasp of what the Celtics plan on doing with Schroder.
