The Phoenix Suns hoped Ryan Anderson would provide leadership, experience and 3-point shooting when they acquiredA him from the Rockets in August.

Months later and less than 24 hours before Thursdaya€™s NBA trade deadline, the Suns have traded him to Miami for Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington.

A leagueA source familiar with the situation confirmed toA The RepublicA before the Suns made it official Wednesday evening.

"I respect Ryan as a person," Suns coach Igor Kokoskov said. "Thank you for his professionalism at work. I wish him nothing but the best."A 

The deal wasA first reported by ESPN. Suns interim general manager James Jones played for the Heat.A 

"Johnson is someone we are happy to have," Kokoskov continued. "He brings some toughness, some energy. Some healthy DNA that we need as a group. Excited to have him and can't wait to see him tomorrow."A 

Whether the SunsA make another deal or two by 1 p.m. Phoenix time Thursday is a mystery, but league sources toldA The RepublicA that Josh Jackson isna€™t on the trade market and Phoenix hasn'tA contacted New Orleans or the Los Angeles Lakers about a potential deal involvingA Lonzo Ball.

Jackson had 25 points in each of his past two games and is averaging better than 18 points per game over the past five. He's starting tonight's game at Utah.
