The German national had a breakout 2016/17 season as he started every game except one and posted impressive numbers. Schroder averaged 17.9 points and 6.3 assists per game and shot 45.1% from the field during the regular season.
However, his time in Atlanta was over by the end of the 2018 season as he was traded to OKC in a three-team trade. Schroder was given bench duties with the Thunder, and he fulfilled their expectations. The trade turned out to be extremely effective for the franchise.
