Report: Rockets Demanding First-Round Draft Pick To Send John Wall To Lakers

Though chatter continues regarding a potential John Wall trade to Los Angeles for Russell Westbrook, the salary cap math and NBA rules related to the trading of future first-round draft picks continues to make it more problematic for both the Lakers and the Houston Rockets.

Given each player’s bloated salary, a trade for the other is one of the only realistic options. And with the Lakers still languishing near .500 in a season with LeBron James turning 37 years old, there’s understandably a sense of urgency to try and maximize his dwindling prime years.

But the rebuilding Rockets have little incentive to acquire Westbrook, since they already have a non-playing agreement with Wall allowing them to easily give those minutes to younger players.

No such agreement exists with Westbrook, and they have virtually identical contracts. Thus, to deviate from the status quo for another veteran guard who they are not interested in playing — Houston needs to be incentivized.

How much? Per Kelly Iko of The Athletic, it would require Los Angeles’ 2027 first-round draft pick in a two-team deal. He writes:

For a deal to get done, Houston would have to be enticed by an aggressive Lakers approach — one involving either a third team or suitable additional a*sets — to make it work. Houston would require the Lakers’ 2027 first-rounder in such a deal, sources tell The Athletic, but it’s unclear how willing the Lakers are to put that on the table.
Because of the Stepien rule, NBA teams cannot be without a first-round pick in consecutive future drafts. The Lakers already owe their 2022 first-rounder to either New Orleans or Memphis, along with a 2024 or 2025 pick to New Orleans. Thus, the 2027 pick is all they could conceivably trade, other than perhaps a right to swap picks in other years.

It remains to be seen whether the Lakers are desperate enough to do that by this season’s Feb. 10 trade deadline, particularly considering that their franchise outlook beyond James’ playing days (he will 42 years old in 2027) is murky at best. It’s also worth noting that due to the Stepien rule, giving up their 2027 pick would make it impossible for the Lakers to trade any first-round picks for any other upgrade for the time being.

Is their current situation desperate enough for them to do that? Only they can answer that, and if they decide it is, it sounds as if Rockets general manager Rafael Stone will be ready and willing to act. But without a clear incentive, expect Houston to stay the course with its status quo.

Replacing Westbrook with John Wall ain't gonna fix the Lakers' problems

It'll help, but Westbrook really ain't the main reason we losing.

And damn, we don't have a first round pick until 2027?? I ain't know that

Slightly off topic

But if Wall is healthy, why arent the rockets playing him? get wanting young guys to get more PT but cmon, they are starting eric gordon who is 2 year older than Wall, and as of now they are starting 3 guards all 6'4 and under. What are they trying to accomplish?

If I'm the Lakers I do it no question

John Wall is most likely a better perimeter shooter atm

And the biggest thing is that he's a willing playmaker, higher IQ and won't shoot the team in the foot down the stretch in crucial situations/games

Plus get Lebron to pass him some of that HGH and get him back to 2017 Wall its over

I pray they don’t listen to dumb a*s bx fans

Let’s trade a guy who’s it’s his first year in LA

We don’t even have the first option back yet

If this were the Knicks and Celtics I’d be worried we do some dumb sh*t but I highly doubt it

This n*gga was 24/9/9 last night

You don’t trade that away for a n*gga who ain’t playing while also giving up a pick

Picks don’t mean anything with a franchise like the lakers

They always been historically good at attracting superstar free agents


I would do the trade ASAP to have a better shooter to give lebron and AD more access to the lane

Im friends with Josh Christopher's dad

It's alot of politics going on, on the team

Even if theyre in position to win, they'll take a guy out to make sure Jalen Green is in there because he's a high draft pick

Rockets don't want Wall messing up the young core's chemistry

Listen to this the lakers trade

A n*gga giving 18.5 7 and about 8
While also averaging one turnover over the last 8 games

For a n*gga that hasnt played in years for any stretch of time

So if John wall knees go out who starting a point guard?

I guess we go get Rondo back

These n*ggas on bx idiots dont watch games

Or know when the last time wall even played a ten game stretch of basketball
