New Houston Rockets guard John Wall said farewell to his former NBA city in a tweet, writing that he will “always have love for DC.”
The Wizards traded Wall to the Rockets on along with a lottery-protected 2023 first-round pick for former NBA MVP Russell Westbrook.
“Where do I even begin?” Wall wrote in his tweet. “Ten years is a long time to think back on. I came to DC as a skinny 19 year old with big dreams and goals. You embraced me and my family with open arms. You rocked with me from day 1 until now.”
