Mutual Agreement To Part Ways

In 40 games with the Houston Rockets last year, John Wall averaged 20.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 1.1 steals, and shot 40.4% from the floor, but his durability was still somewhat of a yellow flag.

For someone who has not played in nearly two years, the veteran point guard put up great numbers, but now it seems like his time in Houston is coming to an end after just one season. 

Today, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that the Houston Rockets and John Wall have met and agreed to work together in finding a new home for Wall.

The 5x All-Star will remain present as the Rockets begin training camp later this month and will continue to be a role model for most of the young players on this roster, but he will not be playing in games, assuming he is still on the roster by the time the new season begins on October 19.

The former No. 1 overall pick in 2010 will now wait to see where he will be continuing his career, but Wall is now 31-years-old with a handful of durability concerns and a very non-forgiving contract.

John Wall is owed $91.6M over the next two seasons, with him having a $47M player option for the 2022-23 season. 

Hardly any teams in the league can afford to trade for John Wall outright at this moment, leaving the Rockets’ options on potential trade talks very minimal.
