John Wall is one of the best point guards in the NBA, but he has a problem with Washington Wizards.
A few nights ago Philadelphia Sixers beat the Wizards 109-102, without Joel Embiid.
John Wall continues to get frustrated after the Washington Wizards lost to the Joel Embiid-less Philadelphia 76ers, who earned their second win of the season. Should the star PG be more worried after they got defeated by the team with the worst NBA record?
Wall saw just 7:28 in the first half and managed just four points on 1-for-4 shooting.
"I was frustrated, basically the whole first half, only playing 7 minutes," said Wall, who is also on minutes restriction after having surgery on both knees in the offseason. "The game starts getting closer and it's frustrating not being out there to help my guys win the game."
Wall already spent 6 years in the NBA, and so far he played only two times in the NBA Playoffs (2nd round exit).
I will now shock you with one information, but Washington Wizards didn't play in the Eastern Conference Finals in the last 37 years.
They played 15 NBA Playoffs and lost 4 Conference semi-finals and 10 First-Round of the NBA Playoffs.
I don't know if John Wall knows about this information, but at this moment the Wizards only can count on him, because Bradley Beal is overrated and he never played more than 73 games per season.
They have 3-8 in the Eastern Conference and they are only better than Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat and New Orleans Pelicans. If they managed somehow to play in the playoffs, they will lose in the 1st round. And that could be the key for the Joh Wall possible trade destinations.
Let's assume Jon Wall will ask for a trade (he has a contract until 2018-19. but he wants to play for a contender), where is the best destination for him?
Sacramento Kings are the very hot destination at this moment because of DeMarcus Cousins. He is one of the best centers in the NBA, and he already played with John Wall for Kentucky Wildcats when they were so young and full of energy.
At this moment, the both teams are far from the playoffs. Sacramento Kings have 4-8 and Western Conference is too strong for them, and DeMarcus Cousins needs help as soon as possible.
After 6-years in the NBA, Cousins never played in the playoffs, and I already wrote about the Wizards' achievements.
What can they offer for John Wall? It's a very valuable trade for Wizards, because the Sacramento could offer Rudy Gay and Darren Collison. Rudy Gay is a free agent next season, and they can clear a salary cap at the end of the season.
This is a good opportunity for Sacramento, because they can have Cousins and Wall in the lineup and with Willie Cauley-Stein they could have a good combination with two big men and one skilled point guard.
I'm sure that Sacramento will get back on the track with Cousins-Wall, and after 10 years, they can finally play in the NBA Playoffs.
New Orleans Pelicans
Anthony Davis is the best power forward in the league, but he can't play alone. They have now 2-10 in the Western Conference.
The Pelicans have to trade players, and if they want to keep Anthony Davis, they must add the All-Star player on their roster.
What can they offer to Washington Wizards? Jrue Holiday, Tyreke Evans and next season 2nd pick for John Wall.
Imagine the combination on the court Anthony Davis and John Wall? They could have one of the best duos in the league. And finally, the could become a more attractive destination for superstars in the future.
The Pelicans must take a risk, and we will see who will play with Anthony Davis next season, or... Davis will leave New Orleans. Remember what I said.
Let's go straight to the point here. Ricky Rubio is an injured-prone player and he is overrated from the moment when he stepped on the court. Yes, he is overrated. I respect his unselfish game, but John Wall is the level above Rubio.
What Minnesota can offer? Ricky Rubio, Shabazz Muhammad and Nemanja Bjelica. This is a great offer for the Wizards, and they will accept that.
Imagine the young Timberwolves next season: John Wall, Zach LaVine, Andrew Wiggins, Gorgui Deng and Karl-Anthony Towns.
I would watch every game of the Timberwolves and fans will go crazy if Wall can play for Minnesota.
Maybe they are overhyped at this moment and they have only two wins, but... they are young and maybe they can make a winning streak in the next few months.
They have a great potential in the league, and with John Wall the sky's the limit.
What do you think, where will play John Wall? Where is the best destination for him?
