NBA 2020 Trade Rumours: The Washington Wizards and NBA All-Star point guard, John Wall was recently connected to a trade to the Houston Rockets.
He is due $40.8M, $43.8M, and $46.9M, and hasn’t played an NBA game in 23 months due to injury.
Wizards’ general manager Tommy Sheppard recently said that the team was going to build around shooting guard Bradley Beal moving forward.
John Wall averaged 20.7 points, 8.6 assists, and 1.5 steals per contest for the Wizards in the 2019-20 NBA season.
This is how he responded when asked about his future with the Washington Wizards:

Considering his health history at 30 years old and the three years and $132 million left on his contract, John Wall may need to take the floor for the Wizards next to Bradley Beal and show the league what he can still do in order to gin up his own trade market.
Beal has also been involved in trade rumors, but Washington wants to see its star duo take the floor again.
