The Suns will have to decide by July 10, 2019 on guaranteeing the full amount for the final season of Anderson's contract, or they can waive him and owe him the $15.6 million. He has two years and $41 million left on his contract.

Phoenix also acquired 2018 first-round pick De'Anthony Melton in return.

Chriss, 21, will make $3.2 million this season before entering restricted free agency in 2019.

Melton was selected by the Rockets in the second round of the 2018 National Basketball Association draft. 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 previous year with a torn ACL in his left knee. In addition to those three, the Suns had Josh Jackson, T.J. Warren and Dragan Bender as players who can play meaningful minutes at both forward positions.

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