The 31-year-old Frye spent his last 4 seasons with the Phoenix Suns. Last season in 82 starts with the Suns, Frye averaged 11.1 ppg, 5.1 rpg, and 1.2 apg at 43.2 FG%, 82.1 FT%, and 37.0 3PT% on 28.2 minutes per contest. Frye missed the entire ’12-’13 campaign following a procedure to alleviate his enlarged heart condition. The 6′ 11″ shooter made $6.4 million in ’13-’14 with Phoenix, so $8 million per season in Orlando is a bump in salary for the Arizona Wildcats product. Aaron Gordon also went to Arizona. Tobias Harris is Frye’s cousin.
