Lakers? Clippers? “Nein,” says Dennis Schroder.

Dennis Schroder revealed that he has received multiple offers from clubs that want to take him away from the Oklahoma City Thunder but despite the interest, he doesn’t look to leave his current team. Even if the call is coming from franchises like… let’s say the Los Angeles Lakers or the Los Angeles Clippers.

“Yes, I have received offers. But I never wanted to go to the Lakers, the Clippers or all the names that may have called my agents,” Schroder said to the MagentaSport podcast, per Sport 1.

“In the end, I’m good with the GM (Sam Presti – the OKC General Manager) and that was my decision. I said that I like the organization here better,” Schroder added.

Schroder, the top German basketball player in the world after Dirk Nowitzki’s retirement, also mentioned that he would prefer an Olympic gold medal over an NBA championship title. Boston Celtics and French national team center Vincent Poirier had also made a similar statement.

“There is no bigger trophy or bigger tournament than the Olympics. I would choose the Olympics,” Schroder said.
