John Wall’s time with the Houston Rockets is coming to a close after just one year with the franchise.

With the team in the midst of a complete rebuild looking to shed both age and salary, the two sides came together in a recent meeting and decided to part ways.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Houston will begin searching for trade options to find Wall a new home immediately. The former Kentucky star will not suit up for the Rockets this season as the franchise works toward a trade.

“After meeting and seeing eye-to-eye on the direction of the Houston Rockets, the franchise and John Wall have agreed on working together to find a new home for the five-time All-Star guard,” Charania reported Tuesday. “The plan is for Wall to remain present around the Rockets entering training camp, which begins late this month, and to not play in games for Houston this season.”
