Three tenets of the Ryan Anderson trade with the Suns

In return, Houston will receive for Marquese Chriss and Brandon Knight.

The move comes as a bit of a surprise with Anderson carrying two years and more than $41 million remaining on his contract.

Last season, Anderson averaged 9.3 points and five rebounds per game.

Melton was the 46th overall pick by Houston in the 2018 NBA Draft after playing one season at USC. Former Murray State point guard Isaiah Canaan is also on the Suns' roster. Though Chriss and Knight aren't expected to be in Rockets Head Coach Mike D'Antoni's starting lineup, they will undeniably be reliable contributors in Houston's second unit.

To clear the way for a trade out of Houston, Anderson agreed to reduce the guarantee on his $21 million salary in 2019-20 to $15.6 million, league sources told ESPN.

Heitmann's McLaren was traveling at nearly 100 miles per hour as he drove south on a northbound carpool lane on the I-805 highway. CHP officers were at the school Thursday, but officials did not say whether the two incidents were connected.

A player of Anderson's ilk, someone who could stretch the court, was unselfish and not a cancer in the locker room, might have put Phoenix over the top and not only into the playoffs in 2015, but for several years in the future, totally changing the direction of the franchise for many years to come. Knight has two years left on his contract and is slated to make $14.6 million this season.

Chriss was the No. 8 pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft.

The Suns now have Melton, Elie Okobo, Shaquille Harrison and Isaiah Canaan as options at point guard.

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

The 21-year-old Chriss averaged 7.7 points and 5.5 rebounds per game last season. The Suns could put the ball in the hands of Devin Booker as their primary playmaker, and while he can get buckets he is not a true playmaking point guard and floor general. He has career averages of 15.2 points per game and will give the Rockets depth in the backcourt.
