Channing Frye surveying market; Phoenix Suns pushing to re-sign

Christian Petersen

Forward/center Channing Frye is testing the free agent market after opting out of the final year of his deal, and the Suns, Warriors and Cavaliers are among his suitors.

The Phoenix Suns free agent fireworks begin with... kind of a whimper.  Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Phoenix Suns are attempting to keep starting power forward and back up center Channing Frye in the fold.

Lon Babby and Ryan McDonough will have to fend off rumored bids from the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.  Additionally, it will take some salary cap ju-jitsu to make a new deal with Frye work with the Suns' plans to add one or two max contract players to the squad.

Frye has connection in Cleveland (GM and former Phoenix executive David Griffin) and Golden State (head coach and former Suns GM Steve Kerr), and would be solid fits for both teams. However, he also still has strong ties to Phoenix and the Suns want to keep him. Frye is 31 years old and opted out of the $6.8 million he was owed this year to seek the security of a multi-year contract.

After missing all of the 2012-13 season, Frye returned to the court an started all 82 games at power forward, averaging 11.1 points and 5.1 rebounds while finishing second on the team in 3-pointers.

What do you think?  How much should the Suns sign Channing Frye for or should they sign him at all?  Please keep it civil in the comments regardless of what you think!
