John Gambadoro of 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station initially reported the complete deal.
Johnson is on a contract that will have paid him $19.2 million by the end of this year, which almost matches Anderson's $20.4 million deal. The big man is averaging 13.0 points, 12.4 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks on the season. Anderson, a career 38 percent shooter from 3, could see some minutes off the bench. Miami also included guard Wayne Ellington as part of the trade.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting Ellington's camp is hoping he will be waived to join a contender. The 10-year National Basketball Association veteran has appeared in 617 career games (139 starts) averaging 8.0 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 21.0 minutes while shooting 41 percent from the field, 38 percent from three-point range and 85.2 percent from the foul line. It also allows Miami to have a $6.3 million trade exception to use in the summer.
Johnson, 26, went undrafted in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft out of Fresno State.
No draft picks were involved in the trade, with the Heat previously having sent two first-round picks to the Suns in 2015 for guard Goran Dragic.
