John Wall for Kyrie Irving

The Nets would need to send one more player to make this work financially, but I actually really like the idea. Having John Wall is a lot better than having the distraction of Kyrie (who will not even be playing) . The Rockets wouldn't care if Kyrie retires because in that case they get out of having to pay Wall while surrendering no assets. If Kyrie decides to stick around, then they got a major upgrade at PG for nothing. Seems like a win-win to me.

Agreed but I think the rockets would try to flip him again eventually and develop guys like kpj and Josh Christopher at point while getting a good pick by finishing with a terrible record.

Yea I feel you on that ahooper. If Kyrie reports to Houston, then his trade value instantly skyrockets because that’d prove that the whole retirement thing was just a bluff. The biggest reason why his trade value is so low right now is because teams fear that he will retire if they trade for him.
