    John Wall's doesn't want any part of that Heat Culture.

    For some reason I thought he would have to give up 20m.......amazing he only gave up the 6.5 MLE which he can get back from LA.....

    Gotta Give Stone credit for navigating this tough situation with no hard feelings.

    Who cares???

    All this does is open a roster spot for another player that won’t play

    I would reserve this comment for the John Wall + other Clippers FA acquisitions. Guarantee you there will be some hard feelings lol.

    They could have kept him on ice for another year but at some point it starts to hurt the team's reputation with players and agents. Once they saw there was no trade available they had nothing further to gain from holding out on buy out talks other than a few extra bucks for tillman.

    Can anyone explain this to me like I'm 5? Does this help us in anyway other than saving 7 million?

    His CPA probably has it lined out as a tax write off--$41M out the door, should help.

    We need his veteran leadership. I'm not giving him up unless it's for a sweet offer, or he asks straight up to get out of here.
