Heat trade Johnson, Ellington to Suns for Anderson

Tyler Johnson has been traded by the Heat to the Suns in a reported three-player deal

Johnson has a $19.1 million player option for next season. Ellington is expected to be waived by the Suns, then eligible to sign with the team of his choice.

Anderson, 30, was averaging 3.7 points and 3.0 rebounds in his first season with the Suns. Phoenix also received rookie point guard De'Anthony Melton in the trade.

Johnson, 26, was in his fifth season with Miami since going undrafted in 2014. His contract includes a 15 per cent trade bonus valued at $1 million that he will receive as a result of this move. He is best known for his hustle that often left him with missing teeth and other aggression-related injuries. He turns 31 in May and is under contract through next season. He played as an essential component of the Heat rotation last season, when he set a Heat franchise record for 3-pointers and National Basketball Association record for 3-pointers by a reserve. Gambadoro reports the expectation was the Suns were going to waive and stretch Anderson in the offseason. Among the several perimeter players on Miami, Ellington took the biggest hit in terms of playing time. The 10-year veteran is averaging eight points in 21 minutes per game during his career. Acquired from the Houston Rockets in the summer as part of the Brandon Knight trade, the Sacramento native has appeared in 15 games this season, averaging 3.7 points, 3.0 boards and 1.1 assists in 18.5 minutes a night.

The trade leaves the Heat with 13 roster spots, one short of the required amount.
