Channing Frye on Kevin Love Trade Rumors: ‘He’s a Banana Republic Model. Dude, He’s Fine.’

by February 05, 2017

Kevin Love has been popping up in trade rumors in recent weeks, but his teammate Channing Frye doesn’t seem to have much pity. Following last night’s win in New York, a game where Love finished with 23 points and 16 rebounds, Frye was asked about the trade talk and jokingly said that he doesn’t “feel sorry for him.”

More from ESPN:

“As a teammate, I don’t feel sorry for him,” Channing Frye told ESPN. “Who cares about rumors? We love him. We know what he does for this team. He’s a Banana Republic model. … Dude, he’s fine. He’s absolutely fine. He knows that we have his back.”

Love doesn’t seem to fazed by the rumors either and was equally sarcastic about trade talk:

“My life is so tough,” a sarcastic Love said after putting up 23 points and 16 rebounds in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 111-104 win over the New York Knicks. “Oh, rumor mill! Aw, God.”

Following a rough January, the Cavs have won their first two games in February and take on a surging Wizards team on Monday night.
