John Wall has yet to take the floor the season for the Houston Rockets. That may be about to change, as Wall has told the Rockets he wants to play. Wall and General Manager Rafael Stone will continue to talk about how they can get the guard on the court.
Wall and Houston had mutually agreed before the season started that he wouldn't play while the team tried to find a trade for him. Wall is owed $44.3 million for 2021-22 and he has a player option for $47.4 million for 2022-23. That's made finding a trade partner nearly impossible for the Rockets.
In recent days, Wall has been active on social media saying he wants to play. Assuming an agreement that can be made where Wall plays, but Houston still features their young, long-term prospects, the former All-Star point guard may soon get his wish.
