More on Channing Frye Trade

The Cavs have been linked in recent days to the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan, another defensive big and who would help shore up that end of the floor. Like every other big man who's name comes up in trade talks, they'll be mentioned with Gasol. The trade pieces would revolve around Tristan Thompson, along with Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye. They own Brooklyn's No. 1 pick in June's draft, but aren't expected to part with that because LeBron James could leave at season's end and they'll need the pick to rebuild.
David Aldridge: Portland will waive Anderson Varejao, I’m told; if so, he will certainly have a few suitors from among contending teams.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Portland Trail Blazers will likely waive Anderson Varejao, league sources tell @The Vertical.
Marc J. Spears: The Magic also acquired guard Jared Cunningham, who is expected to be waived, a source told Yahoo.
Sam Amick: Jared Cunningham will also go to Orlando from Cleveland in that deal, I'm told, but he's expected to be waived. Magic also get a 2nd rounder
Sam Amick: Channing Frye will be sent to the Cavs from Orlando, I'm told. Anderson Varejao will wind up in Portland. More to come.
Dan Woike: Also what I'm hearing. - Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: For tonight, Clippers holding back on finalizing Frye deal with Orlando. Clippers plans to give Orlando final word on Wednesday.
It would not be a surprise if the Magic move 32-year-old power forward Channing Frye, who could intrigue a team that wants someone who can stretch the floor. Frye is under contract through the 2017-18 season.
Now, league sources tell Sporting News, changes could be coming to the Magic’s promising young roster ahead of this month’s trading deadline. Already, the team has received multiple inquiries on big man Channing Frye, who despite being 32 years old and having two years and $15.2 million left on his contract, still is considered a commodity around the league because of his combination of size, defense and perimeter shooting.
Mo Money: I know you don't like these questions but anyway a team could be interested in Frye right about now? Steve Kyler: I have been told Phoenix still has eyes for Channing and that Sacramento was interested, but not sure either is real.
Sources around the league say Channing Frye is available now for very little, though Magic officials deny it. Other names will hit the market, but while the salary of someone like Kenneth Faried doesn’t quite fit the exception, how much would Denver really demand to dump J.J. Hickson into it?

Storyline: NBA Beefs
To recall back in 2019, Holmgren became the talk of social media after he crossed Curry and dunked the ball on him. The then-high school big man basically used Steph’s own move on him. Now, he just made it to the NBA, with the Oklahoma City Thunder using their second overall pick on him. Curry couldn’t be any prouder of what several of his camp’s alumni have accomplished, including Holmgren. While he will never forget how Chet embarrassed him, he said it’s “dope” that they are now going to face each other in the big boys’ league. “Chet hit me with my own move, little double behind the back … he finished it differently than I would though, I would have just pulled up from 3, he went to the basket and dunked on another dude. It’s pretty dope that he’s now in the league as the No. 2 pick,” Curry explained, per Bleacher Report.
Maxey thrived in the new role. He averaged 18.7 points and shot 48% from deep playing next to Harden. Now that the two have been able to work out in the summer, the young guard out of Kentucky is ready to build more with The Beard. “It’s gonna be great,” said Maxey at his 1% skills camp on Saturday. “Chemistry is everything. We only played like 20-something games together so for us to be able to have a whole training camp and an entire season together, it’s gonna be nothing but good things for us and a positive outcome.”
