The Philadelphia 76ers They continue to evaluate possible solutions to the request for change by Ben Simmons, who is no longer comfortable in the organization. One of the more recent rumors suggests a possible deal by veteran John Wall, but the chances of this deal may be slim to none.
Wall is currently in the Houston Rockets and he has struggled to add sports for about two and a half years, courtesy of several injuries that have prevented him from playing regularly.
His huge contract has prevented it from being easily negotiable and complicates the organization’s plans, since for the next two seasons he is owed $ 91.6 million, being one of the best paid in the league. NBA.
On paper, a Simmons agreement for Wall and some complementary figures makes sense, since the 76ers point guard’s contract includes $ 146 million over the next four seasons, that is, about $ 36 million per season, somewhat less than what Wall will receive in the next two years.
But the 76ers’ requirements for a deal have become very clear throughout the offseason, requiring a young star and several other figures to bolster their roster. Wall does not fall into the first category at 31 and outside of that, if they were to seek to accompany him with a young figure, the names of Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr. seem untouchable.
Thus, an agreement between the two organizations seems really unlikely, since the Sixers’ intentions are to continue fighting for an NBA championship and acquiring Wall does not provide them with anything of added value in this regard. It would be a terrible business decision and Daryl Morey does not seem very willing to take such a risk.
