Houston Rockets trade Ryan Anderson, De'Anthony Melton to Phoenix Suns

The Houston Rockets traded forward Ryan Anderson and guard De'Anthony Melton to the Phoenix Suns for guards Marquese Chriss and Brandon Knight, league sources tell ESPN.

The 2018 college football season is fully underway, but the NBA's offseason made a decision to get back in the news cycle this evening, too. The sharpshooting big man fell out of the team's rotation during the postseason past year, and while his ability to hit threes can appeal to just about any team, he struggles on the defensive end and is owed about $41 million over the next two seasons.

The 30-year-old signed a four-year deal with the Rockets in 2016 worth $80 million.

Knight, meanwhile, is coming off ACL surgery that kept him sidelined for all of 2017-18.

National Basketball Association insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Houston Rockets and the Phoenix Suns have agreed to a major trade.

Ryan Anderson used to be a confounding problem for the Rockets, as they were due to pay him $20.42 million in the 2018-19 season and $21.2 million in the 2019-20 campaign.

The Suns acquire Anderson, whose defensive deficiencies ultimately saw him average just 8.6 minutes in 11 playoff games past year.

Anderson barely saw action on the floor in the playoffs, as he appeared in only 8.6 minutes per game while chipping in a paltry average of 1.7 points across 11 games.
