ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins appeared on SiriusXM NBA Radio on Saturday, and he offered his thoughts on John Wall’s potential landing spot.
Wall and the Rockets decided to work on finding a new home for the five-time All-Star guard, who joined the team last season as part of the Russell Westbrook trade to the Washington Wizards.
Perkins thinks Wall could be a better fit with the Philadelphia 76ers than Ben Simmons, who officially requested a trade from the franchise.
The ESPN analyst claimed that the veteran guard will be more aggressive and willing to get to the free-throw line than Simmons.
On the other hand, Wall is still a non-efficient guard shooting the three, making just 32.3 percent of his three-point shots during his career.
He’ll work as a penetrator and facilitator for the Sixers, however, the teams could still throw double-team to Joel Embiid, who is the main offensive production point for Doc Rivers.
