Earlier today it was reported that the Houston Rockets and John Wall would work together to find Wall a new home outside of Houston, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported.

Wall has two years left on his contract with Houston and is due $91.7 million over the course of the remaining years.

Mitch Lawrence of SiriusXM reports that the Detroit Pistons are one of three teams that are interested in the 31-year old point guard.

Wall appeared in 40 games with the Rockets last season, averaging 20.6 points, 6.9 assists, and 3.2 rebounds per game.

Charania reports that the Rockets and Wall have not discussed a buyout, so it appears likely that Houston will pursue a trade that would clear them of Wall’s hefty contract.

The Pistons roster numerous point guards, including Killian Hayes, the 7th pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, veteran Cory Joseph, and Saben Lee, another young lead guard. Cade Cunningham, the 1st pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, is also expected to see minutes at point guard.

There is no indication as to what type of package a trade centered around Wall could involve.
