Lakers Guard Dennis Schroder Discovers Teammate Got Traded During Twitch Live Stream

Videos by OutKick

Lakers point guard Dennis Schroder will forever remember where he was when Los Angeles pulled off a trade for Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura.

Schroder was in an awkward position when the trade news fell: live-streaming on his Twitch account and reacting in real-time as his teammate Kendrick Nunn got shipped off to Washington for Hachimura.

Schorder’s reaction was a genuine shock.


“What trade? Rui? Oh no, hell no,” Schroder said. “Rui for Kendrick Nunn? Oh my god, I gotta text Rui. I gotta text Kendrick Nunn. That’s crazy, man; the NBA it’s a business — insane. Man, that’s…”

Though Schroder’s face was probably disappointed to see Nunn leave the team, he was likely on board with the swap.

With Hachimura, the Lakers are receiving much-needed size on the wing and a capable shooter to aid LA’s issues on both sides of the ball — be it scoring or defense.

Lakers GM Rob Pelinka also surrendered three second-round picks, but in the grand scheme of things, it was the right decision. Especially with the team eager to ship out Nunn, who’s been a near bust for the Lakeshow.
