Unrestricted free agent Channing Frye, who played for the Blazers from 2007-2009, told The Oregonian on Monday he would be open to returning to Portland.

One free agent target for the Cavs is expected to be Channing Frye, who played for Phoenix last season. General Manager David Griffin likes big men who can shoot. Griffin also was with the Suns when Frye was brought to Phoenix. The 6-foot-11 Frye averaged 11.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and shot .432 from the field (.370 on 3-pointers). Frye fires away from outside, 432-of-778 field goal attempts were 3-pointers. He is an unrestricted free agent, and has a relationship with Griffin. Cleveland Plain Dealer

The Suns have their own three free agents who McDonough said the Suns have prioritized re-signing. Frye and the Suns will explore a contract, but he has interest from at least Cleveland and Golden State, the latter of which has former Suns President Rick Welts, former Suns coach Alvin Gentry and former Suns General Manager Steve Kerr. Frye likely has firm interest to prompt his decision to decline a $6.8 million salary for 2014-15. Arizona Republic

If they are unable to land Anthony or James, the Lakers are also expected to have a strong interest in Washington free-agent forward Trevor Ariza, Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, Detroit center Greg Monroe and Phoenix forward Channing Frye, according to sources. Ariza, 29, was a key part of the Lakers 2009 NBA championship team, but left after the team chose to sign Ron Artest to a five-year deal following the season. The former UCLA star is coming off a career season with the Washington Wizards, in which he averaged 14.4 points and career highs in field goal percentage (45.6), 3-point percentage (40.7) and rebounds (6.2).

The Warriors’ Andre Iguodala is recruiting former University of Arizona teammate Channing Frye to Golden State, where the free agent-to-be could fit in as a jump-shooting big man. Frye, 31, shot 37 percent from 3-point range in what could be his final season for the Phoenix Suns after he declined a $6.8 million option, opting out of the final season of a five-year, $30 million contract. “I’ve talked to Channing a few times,” Iguodala told Sirius XM on Thursday. “I told him how great the Bay was. I told him how his family would enjoy it. I know his family well. My family knows his family, so it wouldn’t be strangers. I would take care of him. If he needed a room, I got an extra room for him. I like to pass a lot. I passed to Channing a lot in college, so Channing knows that he’ll be able to shoot the rock.” Contra Costa Times
