While talks between the Wizards and Rockets stalled over a possible Russell Westbrook trade, The Athletic reports that John Wall wants to leave Washington! It’s unclear if the All-Star point guard was upset when he learned his franchise was considering sending him to the Rockets, but he wants to leave now.
Obviously it will be very complicated. First, because his contract is scary: 131 million over three years. Then because he hasn’t played for 23 months! If Houston struggles to find a base for Russell Westbrook, it will get even more complicated for Wall.
