Listed as 6-foot-1 and a slender — some might say shockingly underweight — 156 pounds, the 19-year-old German worked out along with five other draft prospects Friday morning at the Utah Jazz’s practice facility. The bio issued by the team listed Schroeder as 156 but a check of his stats on several Internet sites indicate he weighs more than likely somewhere around 165. “I don’t even know if that’s true,” Jazz player personnel director Walt Perrin said.

Schroeder said he models his game after Rondo’s. Perrin said the body type is similar but he hesitated to take the comparison much further, partly because he feels Schroeder is a better offensive player than Rondo was at the same age. “The only comparison in line with Rondo is body build: long arms, big hands,” he said. “Rondo was not an offensive player except for getting to the basket. He couldn’t shoot the ball. I think Dennis is a better shooter at the same stage.” Standard-Examiner

A better shooting Rondo? 156 lbs? Can he take the pounding?
