Frye agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Cavaliers, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Frye played 44 games with the Cavs last season -- 4.8 points in 12.4 minutes on 33.3 percent shooting from deep -- before being traded to the Lakers, where he suited up for just nine contests. It seems unlikely he'll garner a bigger role this season, as he just turned 35 years old.
Frye averaged 5.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.7 assists across 53 games played with the Lakers during the 2017-18 season. Frye wrapped up his 13th NBA season by shooting 49.1 percent from the floor and 89.5 percent from the charity stripe, two percentages that were his best in five years. The former first-round pick with the Knicks did see his minutes decline to 13.1 minutes per game though as the Lakers elected to go more with their youth. It's likely that Frye can be productive for at least one more season and he will be a free agent this summer.
Frye registered 19 points (8-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 122-112 overtime win over the Spurs. The veteran sharpshooter was in vintage form Wednesday, producing a season - and bench-high scoring total on a blistering 88.9 percent success rate from the floor. Frye has mostly been logging DNP-CDs since his arrival in Los Angeles, but he's now enjoyed a regular role in the frontcourt rotation over the last four games while logging between 15 and 26 minutes in those contests. If his role remains similar for the Lakers' last four games, he certainly has some value as a DFS punt play.
Frye (abdomen) will be available for Thursday's game against the Pelicans, Bill Oram of The Orange County Register reports. Frye went through practice Wednesday, and he will now suit up for the first time since mid-February despite the fact that he was considered doubtful to play. However, given Frye's lengthy absence after undergoing an appendectomy, it's unlikely the stretch four will see much, if any time on the floor Thursday night.
Frye (abdomen) went through Wednesday's practice but should be considered doubtful for Thursday's contest against New Orleans, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports. Frye continues to work his way back from an appendectomy that he underwent about a month ago. The fact that he's been re-integrated into practice is a great sign for his progress and potential to play soon. That said, it's unlikely his return will take place Thursday.
