Previous reports have indicated that Wall will demand a buyout of the contract. before free agency June 30, if the deal does not go through before the June 23 draft. With only two days left until this date on Thursday evening, the chances of a trade appear to be diminishing.

It makes sense for Wall to push for a speedy buyout, as his list of potential fans could dry up if some of them sign free agency alternatives. Likewise, while the Rockets resisted Wall’s buyout last season, it makes sense for Houston to change course this offseason. Now with only one year left on Wall’s contract, if a win-win deal is still out of the question, it may never happen. In contrast, with Wall having two years left on his contract last season, it made sense to wait until he was considered expiring to take a look at the terrain.

From Houston’s point of view, buying out Wall’s contract is probably preferable to forgoing longer-term salary commitments, as the Rockets are currently positioned as significant salary cap in 2023. This could be another variable indicating a ransom.

Either way, it shouldn’t take long to figure it out.
