Houston Rockets defenseman John Wall selected the player for $47.4 million for next season. by Shams Charania, and both sides are expected to come to a decision on its future soon. Wall has not played since the 2020-21 season as he and the Rockets came to an agreement that he will continue to sit out while the team works to find a trading partner who will send him to a more competitive team in his stead.
That deal never went through, and with the Rockets focusing on developing young guys like Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr., Wall was essentially paid last season to stay in shape after he was exchanged. With him choosing the final year of his contract, the Rockets will once again have to try to find a trading partner to take him on or discuss a potential buyout.
Although Wall is not the type of player he once was due to the injuries he has suffered over the years, there should be some league-wide interest in him if he secures a buyout with the Rockets and enters the open market without it. a huge contract included in the equation.
