Not to be confused with Charlie, the Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly have interest in veteran big man Channing Frye.
As stretch four with big role in Suns' surprising season, Frye said to be on radar of both Warriors & Cavs if he indeed opts for free agency

Frye would have to decline his $6.8 million player option for next season. Earlier this offseason, he said that he had hopes of negotiating a contract extension with Phoenix, where he averaged 11.1 points and shot 37.0 percent from downtown last season.
Frye played in all 82 games, just a year after heart surgery caused him to miss the entire 2012-13 season. While Spencer Hawes could conceivably remain a member of the Cavs, Frye’s space-friendly skill set would be perfect for David Blatt’s offense. It appears that the Suns have a leg up on Cleveland at this stage, but crazier things have happened.
