‘Great guy’ John Wall

Wood says it’s tough not seeing John Wall play. But he understands what’s going on and knows what he has to do for himself and the betterment of the team. “He’s a great guy. You can really learn a lot from John.”

After meeting and seeing eye-to-eye on the direction of the Houston Rockets, the franchise and Wall agreed recently on working together to find a new home for the five-time All-Star guard, sources told The Athletic. The plan is for Wall to remain present around the Rockets entering training camp and to not play in games for Houston this season, sources said.
