Schroder played one season with the Lakers after moving from Oklahoma City. Several months ago he reportedly turned down a four-year extension from the Lakers.
The 27-year-old guard from Germany will be playing in his fourth NBA team since being taken by the Atlanta Hawks in the 2013 draft.
The Lakers, bannered by LeBron James and Anthony Davis, recently acquired All-Star guard Russell Westbrook after his sting with the Washington Wizards, added forward Carmelo Anthony from the Portland Trail Blazers, before big man Dwight Howard signed up for a third stint in LA.
