John Wall hasn’t played a game this season.
The former All-Star playmaker is on the rebuilding of the Houston Rockets, and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier this month that “there was no plan” for him to play for the Rockets.
A tweet with what Wojnarowski said can be seen embedded below from the NBA on ESPN’s Twitter account.
According to ESPN’s NBA Player Salary List, Wall will earn $ 44,310,840 this season.
He is the third highest paid player in the NBA, which puts him ahead of many superstars in terms of salary this season.
For example, Kevin Durant will earn $ 42,018,900 with the Brooklyn Nets this season.
Wall was a star when he signed his massive deal with the Washington Wizards several seasons ago but has suffered several injuries since then was traded for Russell Westbrook at a Rockets team that is fully in youth mode.
The former Kentucky star is still just 31 years old.
He averaged 20.6 points and 6.9 assists in 40 games last season.
