Teams interested in John Wall trade only if he declines player option

- by

But why would Wall want this? He has to know: A trade isn’t coming. Teams are interested in Wall but only if he declines his $47 million player option for next season (he won’t) or wriggles free via buyout in this one (he isn’t). Wall looked remarkably good in returning from a two-year layoff last season. His All-Star days are over, but there’s no reason why Wall, at 31, can’t regain a place among the upper half of NBA playmakers.

We’re almost a quarter of the way into the regular season. The only team with a worse record than the Pelicans is paying John Wall $44 million to sit on the bench. – 9:17 AM

Ben Simmons, John Wall, or Russell Westbrook? After Pelicans loss to the TWolves is it time? AM

Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
The John Wall situation is pretty wild. He’s traveling with the Rockets, sitting on the bench in uniform but isn’t playing. I don’t know how that benefits the Rockets or Wall. – 8:39 PM

Very important pregame update:
John Wall just stopped his on-court workout to say hello to Deuce, who was heading to his seats. – 7:10 PM
