Most Suns fans are shocked with the team's decision to trade Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss for Ryan Anderson and De'Anthony Melton.
Sure, if Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough has any sort of guarantee that he will be able to move Anderson this season (or in the 2019 offseason) in a move that brings Phoenix a star and having Anderson's expiring contract on the books makes such a move easier to pull off, then once again, the trade would be universally celebrated. The 6-10 forward has failed to live up to his lottery pick status, averaging 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds over 21.2 minutes per game in two seasons. They also added No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton and acquired former Villanova wing Mikal Bridges in a draft-day deal.
Knight is coming off of a season in which he averaged 11.0 points and 2.4 assists in 54 games (five starts) for the Suns.
Anderson agreed to reduce his salary from almost $21 million to $15.6 million, matching Knight's salary for the 2018-19 season, in order to complete the trade, according to Woj. This year, Anderson will be paid $20.4 million. Knight averaged 11 points and 2.4 assists along with 2.2 rebounds per game during the 2016-17 season and sat out all of past year with a torn ACL in his left knee.

Meanwhile, Knight hasn't played in an National Basketball Association game since February 2017 thanks to various injuries. 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. Knight has two years and $30.2 million left on his contract. He has career averages of 15.2 points per game and will give the Rockets depth in the backcourt.
Wojnarowski reported that Anderson will start at power forward for the Suns. Okobo, out of France, was the 31st pick in last June's draft and showed flashes at Summer League but has a lot of adjusting to do, and his game needs to mature, to really fit at the National Basketball Association level.
The Suns now have Melton, Okobo, Shaquille Harrison and Isaiah Canaan as options at point guard.
