The Houston Rockets and John Wall are expected to revisit buyout talks before free agency should they be unable to trade him before the June 23th draft.
Wall would then become an unrestricted free agent with sources telling Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report that the Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat as strong potential landing spots.
The Rockets inquired about a trade deadline deal with the Los Angeles Lakers for Russell Westbrook with the belief he'd be more amenable to negotiate a buyout. But those talks never gained serious traction, sources telling Fisher.
With Wall picking up his $47.4 million player option for 22-23, he could be even more challenging to part ways with than the Lakers will be with Westbrook.
