Heat reportedly not interested in potential Ryan Anderson trade with Rockets
It is no secret that the Houston Rockets would be interested in moving on from veteran forward Ryan Anderson. There hasn’t been any significant interest in him from around the league.
However, there was recently some chatter that the Miami Heat could be interested in working out a trade for Anderson. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, this scenario is something that the Heat do not currently have any real interest doing at this moment.

Regarding rumors about a Heat trade involving Houston forward Ryan Anderson, that’s not something that interests Miami at this time, according to a league source.
There was talk that Miami could move on from either Tyler Johnson or James Johnson. Reportedly, they would let them go as well as draft pick in a trade for Anderson. This is something that the Heat apparently have no interest in following through with right now.
The 30-year-old seemingly worked his way out of a prominent role in the rotation for the Rockets last season. His performances saw him relegated to the bench. As well as that, he has struggled tremendously defensively. This has made him more of a liability on that end of the floor when his shot isn’t falling.
Anderson was also a non-factor in the playoffs averaging just 1.7 points on 35 percent shooting from the floor in 8.6 minutes per contest in 11 games played. He is currently heading into the third year of his four-year, $80 million deal that will pay him roughly over $41 million over the final two years of the contract. The Rockets could continue to explore the trade market over the month prior to the start of training camp late next month.
