      Basque l- can be originated in a former d-, as in Romance loanwords such as danger > lanjer (L, LN, Z) or disciplina > lizifrina (LN), liziprina (LN). But the coronal can in turn be derived from a labial, as in pesebre > lizifru (G), trisipu (G). This kind of delabialization also happened in older words such as betagin 'canine tooth' > letagin or pezoi(n) 'ditch, trench' > lezoi(n), the latter a Celtic loanword from *bedo-.

        From a statistical point of view, *sreu-m- can be found in Balto-Slavic, Albanian, Greek, Celtic and Germanic, while *reuH-m- is only found in Germanic. This would imply the former etymology is preferrable, although the loss of *s- should be still accounted for.

        I meant "a purely statistical" and "seems preferrable".
