Every NBA season, there are some veteran players that could be used as trade pieces. This is either because their current team is looking to rebuild or potentially get rid of their large contract. For the Houston Rockets, it could be both options when it comes to John Wall.
Wall was originally acquired from the Washington Wizards in a deal that sent Russell Westbrook to D.C. It was not a surprise to see Houston send Westbrook away but they were forced to take on another veteran point guard with a big price tag. Wall was able to stay on the floor and show that he still has some left in the tank.
This was good news for both Wall and the Rockets. Houston could be looking to send away their veteran since he is not a long-term piece.
At the same time, what would benefit a win-now team and this is what he should be looking for at this point in his career.
