“They’re a good team, they play hard,” Frye said after scoring 14 points for the Cleveland Cavaliers in their 109-103 victory over the Orlando Magic, the team that essentially salary-dumped him in a trade last month. “I’ve got a lot of respect for them.” Jefferson, his Cavs teammate, quickly made Frye uncomfortable. “You’re so politically correct!” Jefferson said. “Be honest, what did you say when you walked in here? In the locker room, what’d you say?” “I said, ‘Good game guys’ and ‘On to the next one,’ ” Frye said, still trying to not make a headline.
Although Frye had not done on-court work with the Cavaliers prior to Monday’s game against the Pistons, he will quickly adjust to whatever role coach Tyronn Lue gives to him going forward, starting with tonight’s game against the Charlotte Hornets in Cleveland. “I’m just trying to fit in, just going in working in with the guys and just letting them know, figure out what they like to do, how to get them open, how to create space for the guys,” Frye said. “The ball didn’t go in today, but they’re encouraging. Oh for two from three’s not bad. If I shoot another eight, I’ll take my chances.”
