One of the most notorious transfers of the past season in the NBA was the one that confirmed the arrival of John Wall to Houston Rockets. After an interesting era in the Washington Wizards too plagued with serious injuries, but with the feeling that he is one of the most charismatic point guards in the entire league, with a quality and a special ability.
He is, without a doubt, one of the most different talents in the best basketball league on the planet, and the Houston Rockets have already proven it. However, in the midst of rebuilding the franchise after the departure of James Harden, the player’s palpable irregularity and his tendency to physical problems could have led the Texas franchise to consider the possibility of dispensing with his services.
The final decision
However, as confirmed by Shams Charania, it is the intention of the Houston Rockets that John Wall continue to be part of Stephen Silas’ roster as one of the main figures of the team.
Sources said there are no buyout plans on the two years and $ 91.7 million remaining on Wall’s contract – including a $ 47.4 million player option for the 2022-23 season. Story: https://t.co/oKzzdKR2zt https://t.co/dYQm533ZyF

In fact, many rumors suggested that the Rockets wanted to offer a buyout to the player to save the more than $ 90 million that he has remaining from his contract with the Texan squad.
We will see if with the possibility of a transfer the Houston Rockets mentality changes, but for now the reality is that no other franchise has been interested in the American playmaker and John Wall counts as the starting point guard of a team that, with Jalen Green, will try to return in the shortest possible time to the highest levels of the Western Conference.
