Dennis Schröder, Hawks Agree to Extension

The Atlanta Hawks and point guard Dennis Schröder have agreed to  a contract extension of 4 years. The deal is reportedly worth $70 million, according to Marc Stein.

This is a good sign for Schröder, as this is an apparent sign that the Hawks are looking to make him their point guard for the future. After trading away Teague during the off-season, the Hawks look set to develop the young German.

Last season, Schröder averaged 11 points, 4.4 assists and .9 steals over a course of 80 games. While not great numbers, an increase in minutes, as well as the addition of Dwight Howard, may see his stats increase.

Schröder sent out the following tweet:

GLAD TO BE HERE 4 MORE YEARS WITH THE @atlhawks !!!! LOVE THE FANS , PPL , COACHES , ORGANIZATION & MY TEAMMATES !!! ATLANTA IS HOME !!!! 💯💯
