Washington Wizards star John Wall bemoans low salary

Washington Wizards star John Wall bemoans how the collective bargaining agreement has impacted on his salary.

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall has revealed his frustration with the low salary that he is currently being paid.

The former number one overall pick and two-time All-Star has been limited as a result of the collective bargaining agreement.

"People talk about me getting $80 million, now you got people getting $85 million that haven't made the All-Star [game] or anything like that," Wall told Comcast SportsNet Washington.

"I guess they came in at the right time. That new CBA kicked in, and they're good now. Reggie Jackson gets five years, $80m. I'm getting the same as Reggie Jackson."

Wall added that he was not criticising Jackson in any way, but wanted to put into perspective some of the backlash that he received after signing his five-year deal in 2013.

Wall is ahead of Jackson in points, assists and rebounds per game, while the latter has spent most of his career as a back-up option to Russell Westbrook.
