Magic Shopping Channing Frye

The Magic have been trying to trade Channing Frye, sources tell Marc Stein of ESPN.com (ESPN Now link), who suggests the effort will accelerate now that the team has reportedly agreed to trade Tobias Harris, who’s Frye’s cousin, to the Pistons for Ersan Ilyasova and Brandon Jennings. Orlando has fielded multiple inquiries on Frye, as Sean Deveney of The Sporting News reported a few weeks ago, adding that an executive from a rival team said interest in the veteran floor-stretcher was high. The Magic apparently denied before the season that they were making Frye available for little in return.

The 32-year-old has disappointed since Orlando signed him to a four year deal during the summer of 2014. He has appeared in 44 games this season, including 29 as a starter, and is averaging just 5.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 17.1 minutes per night. His career averages are 9.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.0 assist and Frye owns a career slash line of .438/.387/.820.

Frye is making more than $8.193MM this season, with about $7.8MM coming next season and $7.4MM in 2017/18, the final year of his deal.

Clippers, Grizzlies or even Cavs might go after him

Makes sense as a progression after the trade. They could also conceivably move Oladipo, Formier, or possibly even Vucevic, or they could still flip Jennings and/or Ilyasova elsewhere.

Don’t get carried away. Eran and Brandon were brought in for a reason… Not as trade chips. Vic is tradeable as is frye. That’s it.
