The trade then would become official on Friday.

Green has won back-to-back NBA Championships. He also was a member of the 2018-19 season with the Toronto Raptors when they defeated the Golden State Warriors to win their first NBA Championship.

This was his third NBA Championship. The shooting guard also was a part of the San Antonio Spurs team that won the 2014 NBA Championship over the Miami Heat.

In his lone season with the Lakers, he averaged 8.0 points per game in 68 starts. He also averaged 3.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 0.5 blocks per contest, as well.

The 27-year-old Schröder will be joining his third NBA team. Besides playing for the Thunder, he began his career with the Atlanta Hawks.

This past season, Schröder appeared in 65 games, including two starts. He was considered one of the best sixth man in the league.

He averaged 18.9 points per game. He also averaged 3.6 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 30.8 minutes per game.

It’s not clear what the Lakers will do with Schröder. He has not appeared as a starter since the 2017-18 NBA season when he made 67 starts.
