Wall, a five-time All-Star, exercised his $47.4 million option with the Houston Rockets for 2022-23, but he agreed to take a $6.5 million reduction if the team would buy out the remaining season on his contract.

Wall, 31, was once one of the NBA’s top performers, but injuries waylaid his career. He appeared in a combined 73 games in his final two seasons with the Washington Wizards, 2017-18 and 2018-19.

His four-year, $170 million extension kicked in at the beginning of the 2019-20 campaign, but he missed all of that season because of a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Wall was dealt to the Rockets on Dec. 2, 2020, along with a 2023 lottery-protected first-round pick in exchange for Russell Westbrook. Wall played in 40 games for Houston the rest of that season, averaging 20.6 points, 6.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds.
