Wall was set to make $47 million this season. He agreed to accept $6.5 million less from the Rockets in order to become a free agent. Wall can end up making his original contract money if he signs for the taxpayers’ mid-level exception, which is around $6.5 million.
Wall, 31, sat out all of last season. He missed all of the 2019-2020 while receovering from heel and Achilles surgeries. The former Wizards star has only played in 40 games over the last three seasons. He averaged 20.6 points per game in those 40 contests.
