Channing Frye missed ALL of the 2012-13 season due to a heart condition, then started ALL 82 games of the regular season at power forward for the Phoenix Suns last season. Now he and the Orlando Magic have agreed to a $32 million, four-deal that brings the veteran sharpshooter to Florida.
Frye really stretched the floor for the Suns, and now will bring that talent and his wisdom as a 31-year-old veteran to a young, rebuilding Magic franchise. Frye also reunites with his cousin Tobias Harris, who currently plays for Orlando.
Who could replace Frye as the Suns starting power forward?
The ideal plan would be to either sign perennial All-Stars Chris Bosh or Pau Gasol, though both seemingly are only considering ready-made playoff contenders at this point. Phoenix could also look deeper into trading for Kevin Love. If the Suns want to promote from inside while preserving cap space, they could make Markieff Morris the full-time starter. He certainly took a big leap during the 2013-14 season and could even improve upon last year’s success.
Other options could include players like Ed Davis, Mike Scott and Anthony Tolliver.
What do you think they should do?
