John Wall has played his last game as a member of the Houston Rockets. Earlier this week it was announced that the two sides agreed to go their separate ways. Wall was acquired from Washington last December in a trade for Russell Westbrook, and while Russ seemed rejuvenated after the move, the same couldn’t be said for Wall. Houston is reportedly hoping to trade the 31-year-old point guard for younger talents. Wall reportedly has a few suitors, but given his exorbitant salary and recent gambling, those suitors likely don’t offer much value in the trade.
Which brings us to today’s quiz. For the upcoming 2021-22 NBA season, a total of 34 players will earn $ 30 million or more, including Wall, who will earn $ 42.7 million. So, with that in mind, how many of the 34 highest-paid players in the NBA can you name in five minutes?
