Glad to see John Wall wants to play instead of wait for a trade that wasn’t coming. Can’t just throw away healthy seasons. HOU should acquiesce because a team that’s already lost 15 in a row will continue doing a decent job of “developing young players,” even with a 5x all star. – 6:07 PM

One thing I am curious about now…John Wall wants to play and that’s been made public. If Houston wants to continue to not play him, does the NBA step in and start issuing fines? Do the Rockets make him active, but keep him benched? I’m guessing he plays, but a weird situation. – 4:12 PM

As long as Kevin Porter Jr. & Jalen Green still get plenty of minutes (and Green is currently injured) there’s no downside to John Wall playing for Houston. He’ll help them get organized and at least be more competitive. If he gets hurt, it’s not like there is trade value anyway. – 3:56 PM
