John Wall joining the Houston Rockets has a ’50-50 chance’, according to Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

The Rockets have been in talks with the Washington Wizards, yet more progress needs to be made in order to agree to a deal.

“I’d give it a 50-50 chance. With the state of uncertainty surrounding the Rockets’ two best players, you really can’t rule anything out. Wall for Westbrook would be a pretty clean swap cap-wise, and James Harden and Wall have a good relationship.

I think the deal becomes much more likely if the Rockets receive the sort of draft compensation they’re looking for, recouping some of what they lost in the Chris Paul trade,” Iko reports.

Both Westbrook and Wall have massive contracts and are each owed around $131.5M over the next three seasons.
