Rockets' John Wall opts into his $47.4 million player option for next season, per report

Houston Rockets guard John Wall has opted into his $47.4 million player option for next season, per Shams Charania, and the two sides are expected to come to a resolution on his future soon. Wall hasn't played since the 2020-21 season, as he and the Rockets came to an agreement that he would continue to sit out while the team worked on finding a trade partner to send him to a more competitive team for him.

That deal never came to fruition, and as the Rockets focused on developing young guys like Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr., Wall was essentially paid last season to remain in shape in the instance that he was traded. With him opting into the final year of his contract, the Rockets will once again have to try and find a trade partner to take him on, or discuss a potential buyout.'

While Wall is not the type of player he once was due to the injuries he has suffered over the years, there should be some interest in him across the league if he were to reach a buyout with the Rockets and hit the open market without that enormous contract being included in the equation.
