NBA free agency 2014: Orlando Magic sign Channing Frye

Channing Frye - Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sport

The 31-year-old big man is officially a member of the Magic.

The Orlando Magic have officially announced they have signed Channing Frye to a free-agent contract. The team, citing policy, dis not publicly disclose the terms of the contract. Initial reports suggested the deal would be worth $32 million over four seasons.

Frye, 31, averaged 11.1 points and 5.1 boards for the Phoenix Suns in the 2013/14 season, starting in all of their games. The floor-stretching big man shot 37 percent from three-point distance while hoisting 5.3 triples per game, ranking 21st in the league in that category.

Frye figures to enter the regular season as the Magic's starter at power forward, pairing with center Nikola Vučević to give Orlando an inside-out combination at the power positions. The Magic's other power forwards are Kyle O'Quinn; Andrew Nicholson; and Tobias Harris, coincidentally a first cousin of Frye's.

Across a nine-year career with the New York Knicks, Portland Trail Blazers, and Suns, Frye has posted per-game averages of 9.9 points and 5.2 rebounds.
