Deal close on 4-player trade with Suns, Rockets

The Rockets And Suns Made A Trade Sending Ryan Anderson To Phoenix

"De'Anthony is a talented young guard who stood out for us throughout the pre-draft process and at the National Basketball Association summer league".

The move sees the Rockets shed a bit of money going into the season after offloading Anderson's contract and pick up another athletic big in Chriss who can potentially stretch the floor in Houston's offense.

For the Rockets, the 6-10 Chriss provides more athleticism and defensive versatility than Anderson, and can even play some center in small-ball lineups as a different look if Mike D'Antoni so chooses. 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.

Shortly after the New Yorker ran the Weinstein piece, Farrow blasted NBC for not publishing the story sooner. He is now writing a book about his experience with the network, titled Catch and Kill .

Phoenix acquired Knight from the Bucks in February 2015. Here is why the trade makes sense for the Rockets. 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 averaged a career-high 19.8 points per game in 2013-14 with New Orleans. Moved into a backup role the next season, he averaged 11 points and 2.4 assists off the bench. Knight also hit at least 100 3-pointers in five of those six seasons. He averaged 9.3 points and knocked down 38.6 percent of his 3-pointers with the Rockets in 2017-18.

The Suns spent this summer trying to construct a trade that would answer that question with a star player, but fell short, according to the well connected John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 in Phoenix. Currently, their lineup at the 1 consists of Elie Okobo-another 2018 second-round pick-Melton, 2016 undrafted guard Shaquille Harrison, and Isaiah Canaan.

The Suns now are expected to focus on obtaining an experienced point guard. With the loss of Knight, the Suns plan to continue pursuing a trade for a starting-level point guard before the start of the regular season.
