Channing Frye agrees to one-year deal with Cleveland

League sources told Yahoo Sports and ESPN that Frye signed a one-year, $2.4 million contract with the Eastern Conference franchise.

The Cavaliers' first reported signing since LeBron James announced he'll be joining the Lakers is vet Channing Frye.

Frye was a fan favourite and dependable role player in Cleveland for coach Tyronn Lue.

Frye won a championship in his first season with Cleveland, but the club traded him in February to the Los Angeles Lakers as part of a massive roster overhaul that helped the Cavs get back to the Finals.

Veteran center Channing Frye has agreed to rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In parts of three seasons in Cleveland, Frye averaged 7.5 points and shot.390 from 3-point range. Frye missed the 2012-13 campaign because of an enlarged heart. One year later, mission accomplished.

In addition to James, Cleveland also lost veterans Jeff Green and Jose Calderon to free agency. The match was at 11 a.m. Sunday. Their first round draft pick Moritz Wagner shot the 3 well in college and 2nd round draft pick Svi Mykhailiuk is putting up nearly seven 3-pointers per game in summer league, shooting 36.4%. He didn't play in the Cavs' last game on Wednesday, and was seated on the baseline watching Croatia beat England on a Cavs' front office member's tablet.
