The Orlando Magic will sign free-agent big man Channing Frye to a four-year contract worth $32 million, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The NBA's moratorium on player movement ends on July 10th, after which date the team can make the agreement official.

Frye, a nine-year veteran counting one season he missed due to injury, spent the last five seasons of his career with the Phoenix Suns. In the 2013/14 campaign, the Arizona product scored 11.1 ponts, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game on 43.2 percent shooting from the floor and 37 percent shooting from three-point distance.

At 6-foot-10, Frye can play either power forward or center. He's emerged as one of the NBA's best floor-spacing big men, with a career three-point mark of 38.5 percent.

Frye, 31, already has one Magic tie: he and Orlando forward Tobias Harris are first cousins.
