The Cleveland Cavaliers could certainly use a steady floor general behind Darius Garland and could even plug Schroder’s two-way talents alongside their star point man in the starting backcourt.
Of course, Schroder’s presence could be redundant if the Cavaliers end up retaining young guard, Collin Sexton, so this fit depends on how that situation pans out.
If the Cleveland Cavaliers end up signing and trading away Sexton then Dennis Schroder could be a perfect addition to their jumbo-sized roster. His point-of-attack defense would be a great asset next to Garland allowing DG to hide on the opponent’s least threatening guard and focus his energy on shot creation.
Having a reliable guard like Schroder would also allow Head Coach J.B. Bickerstaff to slide Caris LeVert to the three where he may be better suited on defense and Lauri Markkanen to the bench to become a supersized sixth man.

Even if Schroder doesn’t start, he could come in off of the bench and replicate the role that Ricky Rubio played for the Cavs early last season before he went down with injury, should the Spaniard point guard not be ready to contribute at a high level following his rehabilitation.
Otherwise, Schroder and Rubio could form a fearsome backcourt tandem off of the pine for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
