Late Monday night, veteran NBA point guard Dennis Schroder announced his new footwear and apparel deal with Puma on Instagram. The partnership between Puma and Schroder seems natural.
Schroder was born and raised in Germany and played for the German men’s national basketball team. Of course, Puma is headquartered in Germany. The multinational has been a household name for decades, but has seen growing popularity among NBA players since re-entering the performance basketball shoe market in 2018.
Schroder is currently a free agent after playing for the Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics in the 2021-22 NBA season. However, the 28-year-old is likely to find a new team as the start of training camps nears in late September.
Schroder played nine seasons in the NBA and is still a productive point guard. Despite playing for two teams last season, Schroder averaged 13.5 points and 4.6 assists per game in 64 appearances.

Schroder rocked his hand last season when he started wearing Puma basketball shoes. Prior to last season, Schroder always wore Nike shoes – specifically models from the Kobe, KD and Kyrie signature lines.
Even though Schroder enjoys international popularity, it seems unlikely that he will get a signature sneaker line with Puma. The company only has one player with a signature line, and that’s Charlotte Hornets point guard LaMelo Ball. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more details about Schroder’s new Puma deal.
The 2022-23 NBA season is just around the corner, and Schroder must adjust to yet another new team. Wherever Schroder lands, Puma will ensure their new athlete is shod in their best gear. Stay locked in FanNationKicks.com for all your sneaker news.
