After being traded to Oklahoma City in the summer of 2018, Schroder began the 2018-19 season set to take on a new role with a new team. He spent most of the campaign as the sixth man for the Thunder, playing 79 games in total and starting on 14 occasions. Although Schroder had been a starter in Atlanta the prior season, he made the most of playing behind and alongside Russell Westbrook. He found a way to fit in seamlessly, putting up 15.5 points, 4.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game. Schroder topped 20 points 21 times during the season, including two games in which he topped 30. He dropped a season-high 32 points twice during the season, once in November and again in the final game of the regular season. He also displayed his skills as a passer, tallying double-digit assists twice during the season. Despite playing less minutes compared to the 2017-18 campaign, Schroder managed to increase his rebounding numbers and show that he can impact the game in multiple ways. In the 2019 playoffs, Schroder played an average of 30.1 minutes per game. Although Oklahoma City was eliminated in the first round, Schroder averaged 13.8 points, 3.4 assists and 3.2 rebounds in the five-game series.2017
Schroder continued to stake his claim as one of the league's top scoring point guards in his second full season as a starter during the 2017-18 campaign. Though his season ended early after he suffered a left ankle sprain in late March, Schroder played in 67 games and logged 31.0 minutes per contest. He set a career high by averaging 19.4 points per game, ranking fifth in the league among point guards. Schroder's scoring output was accompanied by the second-best shooting percentages of his career from the field (43.6 FG%) and at the free throw line (84.9%). The former first-round pick also posted per-game averages of 6.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds while maintaining the best assist-to-turnover ratio of his career (2.3). In addition, the 6'1" guard established his career-high in steals, averaging 1.1 thefts per game. Schroder notched five double-doubles during the campaign, including a 13-point performance against the Pelicans on Jan. 17 in which he tied his career-high with 15 assists. He surpassed the 40-point mark for the first time in a win over Utah on March 20, racking up 41 points on 16-of-28 shooting from the field. In another outstanding performance, Schroder poured in 33 points and drilled four three-pointers to lead Atlanta to a 112-107 victory over Dallas on Dec. 23. He was particularly effective on his home court, averaging 20.0 points and 6.6 assists while posting a 46.0 FG% in 36 games.2016
