With no trade or buyout on the horizon, John Wall remains in limbo.
The five-time All-Star is owed $44,310,840 this season, and he has a player option worth $47,366,760 for next season.
It’s unclear what the future holds for the 31-year-old: basketballnews.com/stories/with-n…8:50 PM

Knicks receive:
De’Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley
