Schröder is currently out of contract, last season the man from Braunschweig played for the Boston Celtics and the Houston Rockets. Recently there have been rumors about an interest from the Los Angeles Lakers. Schröder turned down his four-year, $84 million offer last year.
According to Schröder, he believes his agent “calls all the teams. I do my job and he does his,” the 28-year-old said. The selection starts on Thursday (8:30 p.m./magentasport) against France in Cologne at the home European Championship.
The fact that he was allowed to lead the team as captain was a “great honour”, said Schröder. The base did not want to say much about his foot injury, for which he had recently missed the final of the Hamburg Super Cup: “I’m fine.”
