John Wall officially signed a 2-year, $13.2 million dollar contract with the Los Angeles Clippers. Wall has missed two of the past three seasons, but he is one of the better players in basketball when on the court. He and the Rockets agreed on a mutual buyout of his contract allowing Wall to enter free agency. He immediately was linked to the Clippers and ultimately signed with them.

Despite injuries over the years, Wall displayed stardom in 2020-2021. In 40 games, the veteran point guard averaged 20.6 points and 6.9 assists per game. For his career, Wall has averaged just over 19 points, 9 assists, 4 rebounds, and nearly 2 steals per contest. There is no denying the talent. The Clippers are taking a chance and hoping he stays healthy.

Wall could have played during this past season. But he and the Rockets felt it was best if he sat out and awaited a trade. Nothing came to fruition so a buyout this offseason made sense for both sides.

John Wall is expected to form a Big 3 of sorts alongside Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.

On the surface, this looks like a team destined for greatness in 2022-2023. But there is plenty of risk. We touched on Wall's problems staying healthy. But Kawhi Leonard and Paul George have dealt with their own share of injuries over the past couple of seasons.

If this team stays healthy, they may be a Finals contender. Expect the Clippers to consistenly rest their stars throughout the regular season in an effort to preserve them for the playoffs.

John Wall has a chance to play a big role for this potentially elite Clippers team.
