Still, rumors are finally starting to circulate about John Wall resurfacing as an active player next season.

If Bradley Beal re-signs with the Wizards, I think Kristaps Porzingis will be the best scorer he has ever played in DC. John Wall would be the best offensive player (+passing), but Porzingis is the best combination of volume and efficiency the Wiz have had since Beal was drafted. † 13:38 o’clock

Interest in Wall from the Clippers and Heat, if he can finally make his way to the open market, has been mentioned for months. I was also told that the Lakers—despite their resistance to swapping Russell Westbrook to Houston for Wall by adding draft capital as a sweetener for the Rockets—would consider Wall a candidate for roster if he suddenly became available through the buyout market. -through marcstein.substack.com / June 26, 2022
