Rajon Rondo. Their mannerisms are quite similar and Schröder causes the same type of defensive havoc as Rondo, at least in summer league. Schröder plays aggressively on defense and also has an uncanny confidence and swagger.
The Celtics seriously considered taking Schröder with the 16th pick but traded up to take Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk, a selection they are thrilled with after his impressive summer league performance.
Schröder finished with a Rondo-like 9 points on 4-for-12 shooting, 8 rebounds and 4 steals in Atlanta's 75-71 win over Miami.
