The question begs, who is going to take on Wall’s contract?
He has two years left on his deal worth almost $92 million, and that includes a $47.4 million player option for the 2022-23 season that he likely won’t be turning down.
Here are the details via The Athletic.
After meeting and seeing eye-to-eye on the direction of the Houston Rockets, the franchise and John Wall have agreed on working together to find a new home for the five-time All-Star guard, sources tell The Athletic.
The plan is for Wall to remain present around the Rockets entering training camp, which begins late this month, and to not play in games for Houston this season, sources said. Wall is entering his second year in Houston after spending most of his career with Washington.
In a meeting between Wall and the Rockets recently, Houston officials explained to Wall the direction of the franchise and that the team wants to protect the veteran guard’s health. The Rockets explained that the team does not want to jeopardize Wall’s fitness, and the sides agreed on the route that won’t complicate his ability to continue playing at a high level.
Is Wall still an All-Star caliber player?
It is hard to say, but it will be interesting to see who is willing to take a shot on him.
He is going to want to go to a place where he can win a ring. The Clippers maybe the only team that has the type of contracts they can send back in a trade and give Wall a chance to make a run at the Finals.
