The Heat offered Tyler Johnson so much money in 2016 free agency, he puked.

Yeah, Johnson – since traded to the Suns – would like to stay on his current contract.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Johnson’s $19,245,370 salary was an expected burden for Phoenix. At least Johnson is a rotation-caliber player.

He can help next season with whatever the Suns are doing.
