PF Channing Frye is set to retire after one last game against the Hornets to end this season. It’s been an ugly year in for the Cavs, but having this guy return to finish it out here is certainly meaningful.
Frye was a part of that coveted 2016 team that won the championship, coming back from down 3-1, and while he may not
Tristan Thompson even said “If it wasn’t for Channing, I don’t know if we’d win that championship.”
Frye was drafted with the 8th pick in the 2005 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks. He played for, Portland, Phoenix, Orlando, Los Angeles Lakers (briefly) and of course, Cleveland.
I’d describe Channing’s game as a big man who could also shoot the three. He was great from the line, too.
