Sometimes it can fairly easy to forget that John wall is on the Houston Rockets, because he only played in 40 games during the 2019-2020 season and zero games last season.
When the Houston Rockets and John Wall agreed to part ways prior to the start of the 2021-22 campaign, the two parties ruled out the possibility of a buyout. The decision resulted in the Rockets failing to find a trade partner while paying him $44.3 million without playing one minute this past season.
During his Monday radio show, Colin Cowherd praised Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green for making his presence felt in Game 2’s 107-88 win over the Boston Celtics.
For some reason, he decided to blast John Wall and Russell Westbrook in his discussion.
“John Wall has never made a teammate better. Westbrook has never made a teammate better,” Cowherd said. “Draymond Green has made every teammate he’s ever played with better.”
Wall saw the video and fired back at him.
“Lol this guy is a joke,” Wall said in response.
Finding a new team for Wall is a top priority for the Rockets this off-season, and a buyout could be a likelihood in hopes of finding a resolution.
Wall’s absurd contract was the primary reason general manager Rafael Stone could not move on from the 31-year-old veteran point guard last season.
In 2021, Wall appeared in 40 games and averaged 20.6 points, 6.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds for the 17-55 Rockets.
