    If we get rid of Wall who is going to go 8-30 each night to make sure we lose.

    We're not buying him out... he'll just injure himself like he does all the time.

    If it did happened, then It just further proved that the rockets' management team achieved nothing in past 4 months or so…all experiment fell uglily, we let Russ n Harden go n return for nothing but shameful salary dump.
    It's quite funny, they kept pretending that they've been working so hard to back on right track…but for us, it's crystal clear all poised n fake.

    Wall is not tradable because Griffin was bought out.
    Many fans said that his contract is the worst now.

    Tilman can let him walk for nothing and give him $50 million for gift.

    Wall is not greedy.
    $50 million gift is a lot of money.

    If you can trade him during the offseason, i wonder maybe somebody would correct me if im wrong, renegotiate his contract . If he had option to opt out of his contract, and was told with another team he could be partially owed money on that 2nd year non guaranteed for the full amount, maybe it would be a motivation factor if it was for the right team.

    But seriously he wont but only chance is someone willing to eat 2 years cause they think he looks really good and could help them. If there a chance he bounces back to some what great form which is unlikely maybe someone takes a chance.

    If he continues to play unworthy of his salary maybe he agrees to be bought out and save rockets money, why would he want to be part of this only for the fact he getting paid and his career is a complete wash. Why would the rockets want him? does he really think hes a leader? He is never healthy, and his FG% is terrible. He takes bad shots.

    If he gives up the last year
    Or even a substantial part of the last year. Over 50% we do it

    Anything less than that. We make him tank commander this year and then go for a trade.

    "Try[ing] to structure a contract buyout" should have been a huge red flag.
