John Wall and the Houston Rockets appear to have a plan in place for the upcoming season, and it looks like Rockets fans should not count on Wall playing in any games for Houston moving forward. Shams Charania is reporting that Wall and the Rockets have agreed to work on finding a new home for the 5-time All-Star. This all sounds good in theory, but finding a team to take on Wall's bloated contract will certainly be a challenge. Wall currently has 2 years left on his deal and is owed over $90 million.

This move makes sense for both parties, as the Rockets are rebuilding and want to give plenty of playing time to their young players, and Wall would prefer not to be wasting time on a rebuilding team at this stage in his career. Also, Charania is reporting that the Rockets don't want to risk an injury taking place, which could cause Wall to lose even more trade value. This story will definitely be something to keep an eye on moving forward, but trading Wall's contract will be very difficult for Houston, and a buyout is not being considered at this point in time according to sources.
