Channing Frye: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Frye was a healthy DNP-CD on Wednesday against the Spurs. Coach James Borrego said, "I wanted to give Kyle O'Quinn a shot for a few minutes, and we went [with] Tobias at some big spots. We went [with] Aaron Gordon at some big spots. You can't play six bigs in a night, and Channing was the odd man out tonight."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

One of the elder statesmen remaining on the roster, Frye is the oldest Suns' player at 30. He is also far and away their best shooter. Recently cleared to resume workouts after missing a year with an enlarged heart, the hope is for him to provide double-figure scoring and a couple three-pointers per game, while teaching the Morris twins to do the same.

2012-13

Frye has had a resurgence as a fantasy player as a big who can shoot while not hurting you too badly from a rebounding and blocked shot perspective. The question is how much was his value dependent on Steve Nash providing him with open looks on offense, and will Dragic be able to get him the same looks? Either way, his value will take a hit as Scola will likely take his starting role.

2011-12

After appearing to be a bust in the NBA, Frye has rediscovered himself as a stretch four. There are not many seven-foot players who can hit the three, and as such, Frye poses a matchup problem for most NBA bigs. His three-point ability makes him very intriguing from a fantasy perspective, as he can provide rebounds, blocks, points and over two three-pointers per game.

2010-11

Frye went from an afterthought to a viable option in fantasy leagues last year after joining Phoenix – a move that changed his role on offense by putting him away from the basket. While Frye attempted a total of 70 three-pointers over his first four years in the NBA, he threw up 392 shots from downtown last season alone. As a result, he averaged 2.1 3pt, and his 0.8 spg and 0.9 bpg were helpful as well. Still, 11.2 ppg and 5.2 rpg aren't too impressive, and you'll be at a major disadvantage on the boards if you make Frye your No. 1 center, though he'll be asked to contribute more on the glass with Amar'e Stoudemire gone. Still, the Suns also added Hakeem Warrick via free agency, Robin Lopez should improve and it's possible 2009 first round pick Earl Clark could eventually earn frontcourt minutes as well. Frye was a nice surprise last season, but he's disappointed far more than he's lived up to expectations throughout his career.

2009-10

The seven-footer has seen his production drop for four straight seasons, and he was never able to carve out a regular role for himself in Portland. Coming to Phoenix may revive his career, however, as unlike many other teams the Suns may be more forgiving of his lack of toughness and rebounding if his outside shooting can provide matchup problems on offense. With Robin Lopez not exactly a lock for big minutes at center there's an opportunity for Frye to win the starting job outright and return to the level of production he enjoyed as a rookie.

2008-09

Frye looked promising as a rookie while playing for the Knicks during the 2005-06 season, but he’s declined ever since. In fact, his ppg, rpg and bpg have all dropped in each consecutive season. Last year playing for Portland, he was almost an afterthought, averaging a career-low 17:11 mpg. However, he did reveal potential with a solid final month to the season, averaging 12.4 ppg, 8.4 rpg and 1.0 spg on 56.6-percent shooting during April. Still, with Greg Oden joining an already deep frontcourt that also includes LaMarcus Aldridge, Frye’s minutes don’t figure to increase anytime soon.

2007-08

Frye had a great rookie year but tailed off in his sophomore year as he split time with David Lee and Renaldo Balkman. This year seemed to be the same story, but now that Oden is out for the year, he has a legitimate shot at starting at center or being the first guy off the bench to play the four or five. He is a decent rebounder with a consistent 15-foot shot. If he finds himself fully entrenched in the rotation, 11 points, six rebounds, and one block is reasonable.

2006-07

Frye was in the midst of a strong rookie season before it was cut short due to a knee injury. His averages of 12.3 ppg and 5.8 rpg were good enough to get him selected to the NBA all-rookie team. Frye is a long and relatively thin 6-11, and he spends as much time in the mid-range as he does under the rim. The big question for his sophomore campaign is whether he’ll be in the starting line-up and getting consistent minutes under new coach Isiah Thomas after the roller-coaster minutes he got under Larry Brown last season. If so, Frye definitely has the ability to improve on those offensive/rebounding numbers while contributing in the shooting percentages as well (48% FG and 83% FT as a rookie), though he will likely never do much in the defensive (.7 bpg, .5 spg) or assist (.8 apg) categories.

2005-06

Frye was considered one of the more polished and NBA-ready big men in the draft this year, but his performance in the summer leagues (matched up with such luminaries as Indiana’s David Harrison) left the impression that he’ll have trouble adjusting to the speed and power of the NBA game. Going into this season, the best-case scenario for Frye is 15-20 minutes a night as Jerome James' backup.

2004-05

Frye has good athleticism for his size and is potentially the best shot-blocking talent in the draft. He possesses great shot selection and, as a result, shoots a very high percentage from the field. Frye can be dominant in the paint at times, but is more of a complementary player than a star. The biggest knock on Frye is that he doesn’t rebound very well for his size and doesn’t have great upside. Frye projects to be taken in the lottery.
