Knicks. No way I’m giving up a 2nd round pick for Wall and that contract. This would be a travesty for Knicks fans everywhere

Just curious, why are there so many morons in NBA front offices that hand out mega contracts to players that, just 1 year later, franchises are desperate to unload. Why do they do those in the first place?

Just seems like the players make out like bandits all the time every year and everyone except front offices realize this, yet season after season it continues to happen.

Because they have to worry about a lot more than player productivity on the court. John Wall, when he signed that extension, was coming off a great season. Keeping him meant more fans showed up, more jerseys were sold, advertisers would pay more, etc. They had no way of replacing him on or off the court. Just about everyone knew he wasn't worth it for his play, but his play + what he did for everything else made it easier to swallow. His new injuries, attitude, and seemingly lack of care have definitely made it the worst contract in the NBA, though.

Losing that asset sucks. Yes, play on the court should be the #1 reason these contracts are handed out, but there's so much more to it.

The owners have easy scapegoats when these things flame out too, and they mostly just care about the bottom line.

Yeah but it's not just Wall. What about after the Cavs won and the Lakers gave that huge deal to Mozgov? It's more along the lines of those types of players who then become known as salary cap dumps and require assets to purge. Like... don't sign non-star players like that.

Mozgov is one of the most inexplicable deals in recent memory, tbh.

In general, guys get overpaid on the open market. Same as every pro sport. I think a pretty high percentage of NBA front offices are competent right now actually

Washington needs to embrace the Wall contract and tank their arses off.

Some deals can't be explained. It was a crazy summer with lots of bad deals because of the cap spike.

GMs outthink themselves.
