After 2 years, John Wall is about to leave the Houston Rockets with just 40 games under his belt, all played in the 2020-21 season. The point guard, after being idle for almost two years, had returned to the court by recording 20.6 points and 6.9 assists on average, except to be sidelined in his senior year. The Rockets, who began a roster rebuilding after Harden’s departure, did not let him play a single contest last season, despite continuing to pay him handsomely.
Next season, thanks to the Player Option he took advantage of, Wall will earn about $47 million, but in the meantime he will play elsewhere. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, a deal with Houston would be very close, at which point John Wall would sign, probably at minimum wage, with the Los Angeles Clippers. Also on the player, 31, were the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat.
Other teams are calling to pursue Wall in free agency, but his intention is to join the Clippers, sources tell ESPN. https://t.co/6aSX4UfLBc
