According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com, Rockets superstar James Harden preferred to battle alongside Wall over Westbrook.

Wall, 30, was the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. He played on the Wizards for his entire career.
The five-time All-Star has career averages of 19.0 points, 9.2 assists and 4.3 boards per game.
Westbrook, 32, gathered 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game in his sole season in Houston. However, he had more interest in being the main man than being on a superb team.
The Rockets aren’t going to just hand away Harden. Instead, the franchise has bolstered its roster with the recent acquisitions of Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and Christian Wood.
