Channing Frye signs four year deal with the Orlando Magic
Channing Frye has agreed to a four-year $32 million dollar contract to join the Orlando Magic. Frye opted out of the final year of his contract with the Phoenix Suns, which was worth $6.8 million. He made out pretty well for himself with this deal that will earn him an average of eight million a year and provides him with job security for the next four years.

It remains to be seen if he will step into the starting power forward spot over their fourth overall draft pick and fellow University of Arizona Wildcat Aaron Gordon. Either way the Orlando Magic have themselves a very good player that will stretch the floor for Victor Oladipo and open up the paint for Gordon. He will be a positive mentor also for Gordon and will help him develop his shot which Gordon is lacking in his all around game.
