Sharpshooter Wayne Ellington could be free agent after trade to Suns

Tyler Johnson has been traded by the Heat to the Suns in a reported three-player deal.

He likely wouldn't have a big role with the team but would be able to contribute to a team that has a real chance at title contention.

Ellington is now on a one-year, $6-million deal and rarely found minutes in the Heat's rotation. He is scheduled to make $19.2 million this season and another $19.2 million next season if he exercises his player option.

Shooting guard Wayne Ellington will also be sent to the Suns in the trade, Shams Charania of The Athletic added. He is in the third year of a four-year $80 million deal. He's shooting 43 percent overall and 35 percent from three-point range. Johnson is a serviceable point guard who can take some pressure off rookies De'Anthony Melton and Elie Okobo. That offer sheet had a poison pill written into it that almost quadrupled his salary this season from $5 million to $19.3 million.
