Channing Thomas Frye (born May 17, 1983, in White Plains, New York) is an American professional basketball player. His positions are center and power forward. He attended the University of Arizona. Standing at 6 ft 11 in and 245 lb, Frye was selected 8th overall by the New York Knicks in the 2005 NBA Draft, and was the first college senior to be selected in that draft. Channing Frye was named the Rookie of the Month for November 2005 along with the New Orleans Hornets' Chris Paul.


NBA career


New York Knicks

Frye scored his career high of 30 points (14–18 FG, 2–2 FT), along with 7 rebounds, 2 blocks and 1 assist in his first matchup with the number-one pick from the 2005 NBA Draft, Andrew Bogut. He matched his career high on January 6, against the Washington Wizards, shooting 11–13 from the floor and 7–8 from the free throw line. He is considered to be one of the best rookies from the 2005 NBA Draft and was consistently ranked high in the NBA Rookie Rankings [1]. On March 21, 2006, Channing sprained his left knee ligament in a game against the Toronto Raptors when Raptors guard Andre Barrett lost his balance and smashed his shoulder into Frye's knee. Channing missed the rest of the 2005–2006 NBA season.

There was much controversy in New York over whether fellow sophomore David Lee should be starting. blog discussion Lee, also a power forward, led the team in rebounding and field goal percentage, and was statistically superior to Frye in almost every category, but Isiah Thomas, until February 3, 2007, kept Frye in the starting lineup. Thomas' rationale was that Frye is a superior perimeter shooter, and his perimeter shooting would make it harder for teams to double team Knicks leading scorer Eddy Curry. On February 3, in a game against the Orlando Magic, Thomas took Frye out of the starting lineup and replaced him with little-used center, Jerome James. James had only appeared in 19 of the Knicks' 48 games, and averaged 2.7 points and 1.9 rebounds in those games. Thomas explained the change, saying, "I think Jerome is one of the best defensive big men in the game in terms of the center position."[1]

Channing Frye was selected to the 2005–06 T-Mobile NBA All-Rookie First Team, and finished fifth in points (45) behind Chris Paul (58), Charlie Villanueva (56), Andrew Bogut (55), and Deron Williams (46).

Portland Trail Blazers

On June 28, the night of the 2007 NBA Draft, Frye, along with Knicks guard Steve Francis, was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for Zach Randolph, Fred Jones and Dan Dickau.[2] Frye wore jersey #44 after wearing #7 with the Knicks, as guard Brandon Roy already wore #7 for the Trail Blazers. At the start of the 2008–09 season, Frye had surgery to remove bone spurs from his left ankle.[3]

Phoenix Suns

On July 14, 2009, Frye signed a contract with the Phoenix Suns which is reportedly 2 year, $3.8 million deal with an option on the second year.[4]
