Do you have any links to where this is stated? I'm curious about it now.

There both on record as liking each other. If Schroeder buys into the culture and falls under Paul he could be a legit guy off the bench for us.

That's mostly a puff peace with Schroder talking about how good a leader CP3 is. There's nothing in there that would infer they were best friends or anything.

This guy

Nobody said they were best friends. I told you Schroeder looks up to him and credits Paul with helping him grow as a player and person

You said find it and it literally took me a minute

Then you comeback with. Oh that’s not real it’s just a “puff piece”

If your mind is made up on him and what kind of player or person he is just say it. Pretty much just pulled a “FakeNews” take out lol

Nice personal attack.

You have been pushing that some perceived personal relationship between Schroder and Chris Paul would somehow get Schroder in Phoenix. First, even if it was true they had a personal relationship, that's not enough. And second, it doesn't make basketball sense.

Not as a 3rd point guard.
I agree, we already have a shoot-first pg off the bench. I guess the question is would you rather have Schroeder or Shamet... I actually don't know how I would answer that. I *think* Shamet is better defensively but I have not paid close attention.

Shamet is a backup for Booker, I'm not sure Schroder could fit that role. And even if he could, so what? We're not trading Shamet and his currently way overpaid contract.

Again you got a solution? Nope
Why do you think we need a third point guard?

Our whole playoff run we played our third point guard Moore just a few minutes when Paul was out with injury, and I really don't think Payton is a much worse player than him.

We could use another guy that can create his own shot, but it doesn't need to be a PG.

Thing that is really bothering me about Shroeder is Payne totally outplayed him in the playoff series we had against them last year, when the Lakers really needed him to step up with AD out. I actually think stix may be of more value to us than he would, and if there is a chance of signing him for another year at 4.7 mill, than I would much rather keep him.

Well, Phoenix might. It would get them out of the overpaid contract (Schroeder is an expiring) so that they are more comfortable with the type of money Cam J is going to be making. But, I have no idea why Boston would do it.

I think there are 2 major things to take into consideration with a possible trade of Shamet:

1) Nobody will want his contract
2) Monty loves him and was the one that brought him to Phoenix

Like Cam Payne, Monty has a lot of loyalty to his players and those he personally invests in. Maybe James Jones supersedes that, but I wouldn't bet on it.

I don’t care if Paul supposedly likes him, we actually know Paul likes Payton and Payton is garbage.

Schroeder doesn’t buy into culture anywhere. It’s why he’s on his 4th team in 5 years.
