Schroder is a free agent and reportedly seeking huge money. The 27-year-old guard was the target of unfriendly rumors throughout the season. There was talk in May that he was unhappy with his role on the team. Then there was talk that he was frustrating some with the Lakers regarding his play. Even Magic Johnson, who is famously positive, was critical of Schroder.
So if Schroder and Kuzma had issues, it wouldn’t be anything knew in terms of negative rumors and reports for Schroder.
