“My consultant makes his job and talk to the Houston Rockets, and they wanted to keep me for the long term. This year I will most likely stay here,” said the 28-year-old Braunschweig of the DPA on Thursday evening (local time) after the defeat of the Rockets The Los Angeles Clippers. Although you can never exclude anything, “but that people come to me and give me a good feeling, of course, that’s better than anything else,” said Schröder.
I do not want to go somewhere where I simply win a championship. I’m too proud of that.
To force a title, is not his first priority: “I do not want to go somewhere, where I simply win a championship, I’m too proud, I want to play a big role and contribute to it.”
Schröder was sent a week before the Boston Celtics in exchange for national player Daniel Theis to the Rockets. His contract runs until the end of the NBA season in summer.
Good option due to salary top limit
The Rockets are tables in the Western Conference, according to Schröders but no bad place for him. “Now at Houston – very, very surprising. But my consultant has also said that is a good option,” because the salary upper limit with the squad was not exhausted. Schröder also looks “Many, many players who are very, very talented. Where we have a few building blocks and build trumpets.” Should some experienced professionals come from teams that have been successfully successfully played, “then we can tear something too.”
