Suns Giving Channing Frye $30 Mil, Over 5 Years

The insane, head-scratching deals continue to pour in. KTAR has details of the Suns’ signing of Channing Frye: “The deal, reportedly worth $30 million, will keep the 27-year-old in Phoenix during a time when it seems the team’s star forward, Amare Stoudemire, will be leaving … The Suns initially offered Frye $20 million over five years, and then raised their offer to $25 million before finally settling on the number that was agreed upon.”

    20 mill sounds about right, 25 mill miiight be fair.. but honestly all the salary inflation so far is ridiculous. the saving grace to this is that Frye (occasionally) competes on the defensive end, whereas Stoudemire never did..

    He’s donating half of his contract to the Steve Nash “I saved your career” foundation.

    No. No. No. What is with all this deals popping up? Sooner or later, Stephon Marbury will be making 30 million or something

    Anyone on the Suns getting an offer of more than 3 years, besides Amare, should take it NOW. Cause when Steve Nash is done feeding them the ball and getting them wide open looks, then we’ll see how good that contract looks.

    That equals 1 mill for every missed three pointer in the playoffs!!

    Mind you in perspective of the regular season alone. This won’t look so bad with a full season of Frye starting. I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that Frye will average about 19.6 ppg and 10.2 rpg on the season.
