Wall just exercised his $47 million player option with the Rockets, meaning he is still with the team that he hasn’t played for in over a year.
The likelihood of him playing for Houston again isn’t high but Wall is still going to get that cash.
And when you take a hard look at his last few years in the league, you see just how good he is at turning a buck without making a bucket.
John Wall has made $123,764,760 over the last 3 years. In that time he has played 40 games and 1,288 minutes of basketball.
$3,094,119 per game played
$96,091 per minute played

In fact, Wall has made $123,764,760 over the last three years, in which he has played 40 games and only 1,288 minutes.
That means he’s received $3,094,119 per game and $96,091 per minute played.
What has led Wall to this point – and what comes next for him?
Wall was once one of the most sought-after stars in the NBA but times have changed.
When he signed with the Rockets, it was thought that he would be a cornerstone of the team’s future.
But an injury led to him missing many games at the start of his time with Houston.
Following that, the team seemingly moved on after they landed the number two pick in the draft, Jalen Green.
There wasn’t much space for Wall on the team’s roster so he instead chose to sit out…for an entire season.
Now the Rockets are really done with Wall and are trying to find a team to trade him to.
However, because it’s been so long since he’s played, Wall isn’t attracting a lot of attention.
But no matter where he plays, Wall is still going to get his paycheck.
