Wing player Wayne Ellington will also be heading to Phoenix in the trade. He averaged 3.7 points in those games. With Justice Winslow growing into a strong point guard in the absence of All-Star Goran Dragic, and Dion Waiters back at full health, it's not a surprise Wayne Ellington is gone.
The trade reduces the Heat's luxury tax for this season from $9.7 million to $1.7 million, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. His contract also has a 15-percent trade bonus valued at $1 million.
Johnson, 26, is in his fifth National Basketball Association season, all with the Heat. At the time it was a necessary evil for the Heat to match the four-year $50 million restricted offer sheet the Brooklyn Nets gave to Johnson in the light of Wade's bitter departure to the Chicago Bulls. He is best known for his hustle that often left him with missing teeth and other aggression-related injuries. He will make $6.27 million this season and will then become a free agent. 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.
Anderson was sent from the Rockets to the Suns in late August. Last season he was one of Miami's most important rotation players and most effective perimeter threat. He is averaging 10.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 44 games with the Heat this season.
