John Wall “rankled” by James Harden’s contract

Jealousy is the root of all evil, and no one needs to hear that more than Washington Wizards point guard John Wall.

A front office executive told The Ringer that Wall was “rankled” after hearing of James Harden‘s four-year $118 million extension with the Houston Rockets.

This is not the first time Wall has been bothered by someone else’s money, as he was clearly upset by Reggie Jackson‘s $80 million contract with the Detroit Pistons.

According to The Vertical, Wall rejected an offer from Adidas that would pay him $7.5 million a year, because he wanted “Harden money.”

Harden had signed a lucrative 13-year $200 million deal with the shoe company, which has apparently lead to this:

Wall fired his agent, Dan Fegan, a few months later and hired Rich Paul.

The 6-foot-4 Kentucky product suffers from a combination of poor timing and bad representation.

Wall signed his contract before the new CBA, which has made his $80 million look like nothing compared to the contracts that are being dealt out.

All his points about why he should be better compensated are legitimate, but his team’s lack of relevance and the poor viewership of the Wizards in networks nationwide renders the shoe company uninterested in signing him for more money.

Things don’t seem to be getting better any time soon for Wall as he and teammate Bradley Beal seem to have some tense moments of their own.
