John Wall will not play for Rockets this season: Report


HOUSTON -- Coming off of one of the worst seasons in franchise history, the Houston Rockets' future is uncertain. One thing that is certain, is that the franchise plans to build around No. 2 overall pick Jalen Green.

The other, is that veteran point guard John Wall's time in Houston is over.

On Tuesday, per a report from NBA insider Shams Charania, the Rockets and Wall mutually agreed to part ways, with the understanding that Wall will not suit up for the team this season.

Wall will be present at training camp for Houston, but that will be the extent of his involvement.

According to Charania's sources, there is no buyout planned for Wall and the $91.7 million remaining on his contract.

Wall also has a $47.4 million player option for the 2022-23 season.

Wall averaged 20.6 points, 6.9 assists, 3.2 rebounds per game for the Rockets last season, re-establishing himself as a solid roster piece many NBA teams could covet in a trade scenario.
