    Lol, is Wall really gonna chill on the sidelines until his contract is done?

    I don’t see huge expirings of non-star level players getting traded that often, do y’all? Would anyone even bother trying to match that expiring when they haven’t seen this dude play in over a year? John Wall better hit the summer circuit hard and put out several workout and highlight tapes to see if he can catfish a team.

    We don’t want him to seek a buyout. The money still counts against the cap, so we can’t make any moves, anyway. Let him sit on the bench until next year’s trade deadline when a team looking to dump a multi-year salary is willing to make a move. Keep in mind, that player signed long term would also need to be appealing to the Rockets. So, in all likelihood, nothing happens and the rockets cut him loose next February.

    Wall not picking up his option next year is another story, but the Rockets should not entertain buyout talks even if he wanted to. You can’t do anything with his salary hit once you do the buyout. Might as well hold out for that 1% possibility.

    I've said all along that his expiring contract will not be an asset whatsoever, and I will continue to say it. Y'all need to accept that fact. Massive expiring contracts are almost never traded away for any return. The last time that happened was when we traded T-Mac to the Knicks.

    At this point I'll even take a package of Marcus Smart, Josh Richardson, Juancho Hernangomez for Wall. At least Wall's huge cap hit can be broken down to tradeable pieces. Boston needs a point guard in the worst way possible anyway.

    I don’t pay attention enough to trades and contracts but Tmac was a large expiring contract and he was basically in the same physical condition Wall is in if not worse, right? Is the number important or only relative to salary cap. Because in 2012 23 million was a max contract.

    Which would make him harder to trade, wouldnt it? Wall still can run.

    The Great Wall of Houston - protection not guaranteed due to having lots of holes.

    The goal should be to get rid of EG/Wood to accumulate additional FRPs. If any star player on a max contract (Deaaron Fox is an example) becomes available, Houston will have a large expiring contract plus several FRPs to be able to get a star that makes sense on this team, plus absorb a bad contract as well.

    Its good to have flexibility.
