Cavaliers bring back sharpshooting forward Channing Frye

In the aftermath of LeBron James signing with the Los Angeles Lakers, the future is uncertain for the Cleveland Cavaliers. There’s no telling whether the perennial title contenders will be able to bounce back quickly from LeBron’s departure, but they are bringing back a familiar face in Channing Frye.

According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, the Cavaliers have signed Frye to a one-year deal.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed veteran big man Channing Frye to a one-year, $2.4 million deal, league sources confirmed to ESPN.

Before being traded to the Lakers in the deal that sent Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. to Cleveland before the NBA trade deadline in February, the veteran forward played two seasons with the Cavaliers winning a title with the team in his first year with the squad.

Frye has bounced around the league quite a bit since he was drafted by the New York Knicks back in 2005. The Arizona product has played for the Knicks, Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, Orlando Magic, Cavaliers, and Lakers.

Although Frye just turned 35 years old in May, the one-time NBA champion is known for being a great locker room guy and can still stretch the floor. Cleveland will likely be a great spot for the veteran shooter as he may be able to get substantial minutes in a team which will be revamped in the post-LeBron era.

Last season, Frye averaged 5.0 points and 2.5 rebounds per game while shooting 49.1 percent from the floor and 33.9 percent from the three-point line.
