Source: John Wall's trade request was inevitable

If you thought the NBA’s silly season would take a holiday in an unconventional offseason, that memo did not reach John Wall.

Wall apparently wants out of Washington, requesting a trade in the wake of the rumors surrounding discussions of a swap involving himself and Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook — who also has asked out of his current situation.

That makes three All-Star guards looking for a change of address if you include Westbrook’s teammate, 2017-18 MVP James Harden. Wall has played just 73 games in the last three years, missing the entire 2019-20 season after rupturing his Achilles’ tendon in February 2019.
