Houston has spoken to several teams already, including the Clippers, Heat, and Pistons, as Mitch Lawrence of Sirius NBA relays.
Some within the Rockets organization feel that the franchise took a PR hit with the James Harden trade and the team isn’t rushing to trade Wall with that in mind.
“We have to win this trade,” one Rockets’ executive told Lawrence of a potential John Wall trade.
One team that won’t be dealing for Wall: the Pelicans, as Bally Sports’ Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson tweets. New Orleans’ focus is on their young core of Kira Lewis & Nickeil Alexander-Walker. It’s also worth noting that the franchise recently acquired Devonte Graham & Tomas Satoransky.
