When is John Wall coming back?

After all the John Wall saga he could play for the Houston Rockets this season.

According to ESPN, John Wall and the Houston Rockets are currently discussing his availability to play in the current 2021/22 NBA season, and that could happen very soon.

John Wall and the Rockets have an agreement that he will not play until they find him a new team, but no one wants to trade, so the five-time All-Star “fades” without basketball, and that could soon change.

Rafael Stone, the general manager of Houston Rockets, said that negotiations between the two sides would start this weekend. John Wall has a supermax contract, and the Rockets want to play young players, and it is not in their favor for an experienced playmaker to take the minutes.

However, the young players have problems with injuries, their hand “project” injured Jalen Green will not play for at least another week and the player who has two more years of the contract worth 91 million dollars left, could get a few minutes after all.

Houston Rockets has 3 wins and 16 losses this 2021/22 season.

We wrote about a possible trade talk with Miami Heat but it looks like this trade is put on hold for now.
