NBA Rumors: John Wall's Days Could Be Numbered With Clippers

It was seen as a positive move in the offseason when the Los Angeles Clippers signed the recently-bought-out John Wall to a $6.5M deal with a club option for a second year. He was only one season removed from a nice comeback season in Houston, when he averaged 20.6 points with 6.9 assists. 

But the experiment appears to be nearing an end with the Clippers, and he could be heading for yet another buyout.

Clippers beat writer Andrew Greif wrote in the Los Angeles Times:

Multiple people across the league said the Clippers have been proactive in seeking trade partners for Wall and are considering the possibility of buying out the former five-time All-Star if a trade doesn’t materialize.

Wall has been out the last three weeks with an abdominal injury, but before that, averaged 11.4 points, 5.2 assists and 2.7 rebounds in about 22 minutes per game, but as Greif notes, with a team-low minus-9.2 net rating. 

Wall was taking all the rumors in stride:

"If you be here just try to figure out what your role is, and if you’re not here, then you got to try to find a new situation, like what the new situation might be and stuff like that.

“I’m just trying to focus on trying to get back and play. Just let everything else happen the way it’s going to happen.”
