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

The Houston Rockets will get PF Marquese Chriss and PG Brandon Knight in return.

The Rockets had been looking to move Anderson and the $41 million he is owed over the next two seasons.

Melton, 19, is a second-round draft pick out of USC who showed dynamic, if raw, talent in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Wojnarowski also said the front office will pursue a trade for a "starting-caliber" option at point guard.

Speaking of Brandon Knight, he could fit in very well with Houston. On Friday however, Wojnarowski reported that Anderson agreed to reduce the guarantee on his 2019-20 salary to $15.6 million - which only applies if he is waived. This year, Anderson will be paid $20.4 million. He averaged 8.3 points, 3.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game in the 2016-17 season for the Trojans and did not play previous year.

Asked what he had said to Salah immediately after the incident, he replied: I told him "say to the referee it was not a penalty". There were still some sparkling performers in the Liverpool side, and they unexpectedly came in the defensive area of the pitch.

With the addition of Trevor Ariza, Chriss was forced out of the rotation. hriss, the eighth overall pick in the 2016 draft, averaged just 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds over his two seasons in Phoenix and never reached his full potential.

Houston has been trying to get rid of Anderson's contract for a while.

Knight does have two years left on the five-year, $70 million deal he signed in 2015, but by acquiring the 26-year-old guard, Houston saves about $10 million over the next two seasons on the cap. The 21st overall pick in the 2008 draft, he has played for four different teams, averaging 12.8 points and 5.4 rebounds a game. He has career averages of 15.2 points per game and will give the Rockets depth in the backcourt.

The Suns expect Anderson to start at power forward this season, according to the report.

Right now the Suns have Shaquille Harrison and rookie Elie Okobo at the point.
