The off-season has started off at a frantic pace as teams all around the league are trying to pry in the best available free agents. While there was a real shortage of guards in the free agency pool this season, John Wall was among the few who stood out.
Coming straight out of a season where he did not play a single game of basketball, Wall and the Houston Rockets understandably came into a compromise as both the parties settled for a buyout. This made Wall a free agent, and the Clippers had their sight set on the veteran.
Signing the former Wizards superstar in a two-year deal worth $13.2 million, the Clippers have taken a small gamble on the guard and hope their trust pays off. While this will be the first time Wall will play for the Clippers, he is very well aware of some of the players who are with the franchise. One of the players that the 32-year-old knows pretty well is Paul Geroge.
PG, who started his NBA career in 2010, was in the same draft class as Wall, and ever since then, the duo have been great friends off the court. After a hard-fought matchup against a Wall-led Rockets back in the 2020-21 season, George was appreciative of his friend and lauded him for his great performance.
