I have a laptop with wireless internet and an older desktop without wireless conectivity. If I purchase a wireless printer, will I still be able to use it with the desktop without wireless connectivity in addition to the wireless laptop? Does a wireless printer come with a nonwireless option?

if you have a wireless access point in your modem and the desktop plugs in the modem yes the wireless printer will work fine

if you use a usb wireless modem then you wont be able to connect the printer to the wireless

and most if not all still allow you to use a USB connection
