John Wall-Khris Middleton Trade Rumblings Take Over Twitter

And while there’s nothing directly linking the situation between Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton and Washington Wizards guard John Wall, not everyone is willing to ignore it. After all, how Wednesday played out was a bit strange, to put it lightly. Khris Middleton's absence tonight (NWT – personal) marks his first missed game since the 2016-'17 season. He played all 82 reg. season games last year and the first 22 of this season — all starts. This was largely due to the fact that Wall has been rumored to be on the trade block, and Middleton was apparently benched in Milwaukee’s last game. If they opt to wait until the offseason, that number drops down close to nothing, making a trade then far more likely. Haberstroh: “The trade kicker for John Wall right now is at $21 million that the Wizards would have to eat if they traded John Wall today. It’s $20 million that they would have to pay just to get rid of him.” To make things seem even less likely, the Wizards would be trading arguably their best player for an expiring contract. There doesn’t seem to be any way the Wizards take an expiring deal for Wall on top of paying his trade kicker currently.

The NBA rumor mill never cools off. And while there’s nothing directly linking the situation between Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton and Washington Wizards guard John Wall, not everyone is willing to ignore it. After all, how Wednesday played out was a bit strange, to put it lightly.

First, Wall was ruled out early in the day for personal reasons, and then just prior to the Bucks game against the Detroit Pistons, Middleton was also ruled out with the same label. As Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel revealed, this marked one of the first games missed in nearly two seasons for Middleton, and he wasn’t with the team.

No one is entirely sure of what the situation is, and while everyone hopes that things are alright for both players, it led to a whole lot of trade speculation….
