John Wall could be considered hot property at the moment as he comes off the books for the Houston Rockets. However, NBA fans were shocked by the news of Wall's decision to sign with the LA Clippers.

Having played 40 games in the 2020-21 season, Wall has been a mystery ever since. Coming off injury and then sitting out due to personal reasons last season, the guard has been an unknown factor.

However, since opting into his $47 million player-option with the Rockets, Wall is on the way out of Houston after coming to a buyout agreement.

While several teams such as the LA Clippers and the Miami Heat showed interest in Wall, the former superstar already had a destination in mind. With plans to join Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in LA, the guard has generated a lot of buzz on social media.

With fans celebrating Wall's move, here are some of the best reactions to the situation on Twitter:

Set to join the LA Clippers, fans widely believe that John Wall will turn the franchise into a title contender. The notion stands firm even while considering that Wall hasn't played in over a season.

However, with one of the most explosive guards in the league returning, the Clippers will add an exciting element to their roster.

Prior to his injury, John Wall was considered one of the best point guards in the league. Although his three-point shooting wasn't top-tier in any manner, his athleticism and ability to pass were eye-catching traits.

This makes him of great use to a team such as the Clippers. Considering that the side had Eric Bledsoe as their starting point guard last season, Wall appears to be a massive upgrade on paper.

Having played a large part of the season without a natural point guard and without their superstars, LA looked like a team in disarray. Although Reggie Jackson has been a bit of a breakout star for the side, his abilities as a playmaker are questionable.

In this regard, Wall ticks a lot of boxes for the Clippers. Although his shooting from beyond the arc isn't impressive, his slashing ability opens up avenues for a multitude of drive-and-kick plays.

While some fans believe that the star would be better suited to come off the bench, a player of Wall's caliber is rarely seen in such a position. Also, considering LA's lack of depth in the point guard slot, Wall is a shoo-in to start.

Having the 31-year-old on the roster also does wonders for the Clippers' star power. Served by the duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, Wall only completes a potential superstar trio for the side.
