New contract information for John Wall

New contract information for John Wall

While it has long been known that John Wall had signed a two-year, $13 million contract with the Los Angeles Clippers to make up for the $6.5 million he paid back to Houston as part of his buyout, Michael Scotto of HoopsHype just claimed that year two of Wall’s deal is a team option.

This flexibility maximizes what was already a promising signing for the Clippers. The ideal version of John Wall, even at this stage of his career, projects to be a seamless fit on a team loaded with shooting and defense. If this vision does not cultivate, the Clippers will have committed very little to Wall, who is not guaranteed beyond the 2022-23 season. Again, the opposite extreme allows the Clippers to retain Wall for $6.5M again for the 2023-24 season, even if he outperforms that salary.

This makes the Clippers’ low-risk acquisition even more low-risk, given there is no further commitment beyond this season. If Wall underperforms, the Clippers will have the option to release him at the end of the 2022-23 season. In contrast, if Wall returns to form, the Clippers will avoid losing him to a greater offer next summer.

Needless to say, the Clippers did very well with the John Wall signing, and are understandably excited to implement his talent into an already loaded roster.
