Wojnarowski added that Anderson agreed to reduce his 2019-20 guarantee amount on his salary from $21.3 million to $15.6 million, the same amount Phoenix owed Knight in the final year of his contract. He averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 21.2 minutes per game during his first two seasons. They sent Melton, a second-round pick in this year's draft, to the Suns as part of the deal.
