Heat Trade Johnson, Ellington to Suns for Anderson

The Miami Heat have agreed to a trade that will send Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Ryan Anderson according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Phoenix has been in the market for a starting point guard to pair with Devin Booker in their backcourt and Johnson could fit that bill. The fifth-year pro is averaging 10.8 points and 2.5 assists per game.

Ellington is also heading to Phoenix, but according to Wojnarowski, is working on a deal to be bought out so that he can join a contending team.

Miami will get a player in his 11th season in the league with Anderson. Phoenix will shed his $20.4 million cap hit for this year and $21.3 million for next year. Anderson is averaging 3.7 points and 3.0 rebounds this season for Phoenix.
