Report: 2 notable teams attend John Wall showcase
John Wall is still hoping to re-establish himself in the NBA, and at least two teams showed enough interest to check out his showcase on Sunday.
According to Kelly Iko of The Athletic, multiple teams attended Wall’s private workout on Sunday. Among those who sent representatives were the Boston Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers.

The Celtics and Blazers both have interesting reasons to be interested in Wall. Boston just traded Marcus Smart and may still move Malcolm Brogdon, which would leave them in need of guard depth. The Blazers are, of course, dealing with Damian Lillard’s trade request, and such a move would completely reshape their roster. Wall might be the sort of player that can provide some veteran stability on what might end up being a young team.
Wall has not been fully healthy for years, and played 34 games for the Los Angeles Clippers in a limited role last season. He averaged 11.4 points per game in 22.2 minutes per game for them.
