ANALYSIS: Houston continues to seek a new home for one of its two disgruntled stars, and it looks as if general manager Rafael Stone is turning every stone (no pun intended) to try and get back a fair return for an All-Star in Westbrook. Wall and Westbrook's supermax contracts are essentially the same in value at an increasing annual salary amount ($41+ million in 2020-21, 44+ million in '21-22); each respective deal ends in '21-22 with a lucrative player option ($47+ million) in '22-23.
