It seems like the Houston Rockets have been in “sell” mode ever since the offseason as they have gone from entering this past offseason as a true playoff contender and championship hopeful, to one of the worst NBA teams in the league that is facing an uphill rebuilding process.
In the offseason, the Rockets traded away both Robert Covington and Russell Westbrook and in January, they finally granted James Harden his wish and traded him to the Brooklyn Nets.
Now, in the post-Harden era, the Rockets are still left with some talented players on their roster, but they are not going to be making the playoffs this season. This team will be rebuilding over the next couple of seasons and as a result, they could look to leverage some of their veteran players in the offseason.
While they did not make him available at the NBA trade deadline, the Houston Rockets could potentially look to trade John Wall in the offseason, especially if he is healthy at the end of the year and continues to play at a high-level.
In 32 games with the Rockets this season, John Wall has averaged 20.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 6.8 assists and has shot 40% from the floor. When he has been on the court for the Rockets, he has undeniably been their top player and has looked like the floor general he once was before his slew of injuries.
There are plenty of teams who could use a high-level point guard like John Wall, which is why these three teams could look to trade for the former All-Star point guard in the offseason.
