Default Woj: Clippers close to landing Channing Frye

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojVerticalNBA 33 minutes ago
The Los Angeles Clippers are nearing agreement on a deal to acquire Orlando's Channing Frye, league sources tell @TheVertical.

Clippers would Lance Stephenson in a deal with Magic, but league sources say Clippers probing another deal elsewhere with Stephenson too.

Clippers could turn back to Orlando and complete Frye deal that would include Stephenson, CJ Wilcox and possibly a future 2nd rounder.

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojVerticalNBA 26 minutes ago
Sources: For tonight, Clippers holding back on finalizing Frye deal with Orlando. Clippers plans to give Orlando final word on Wednesday.

Frye remains a significant target for several teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, sources tell @TheVertical.

Sources: Clippers are working on a bigger deal using Stephenson's contract, but that is a longshot. Most likely scenario still Orlando deal.

Sources: If Frye deal to Clippers goes through on Wednesday, Stephenson would never play a game for Orlando. Magic will waive him.

the above ^^^ is all Woj.

With Frye on the team, it means that Griffin is gone

All of that for Channing Frye, he sucks. Dumbass Doc Rivers and his lackluster GM skills.

A lot of contenders have had interest in frye, he's not rounded but he's one of the better stretch fours in the league when used in that role. Orlando had him doing too much, off the bench as a kick out shooter he's great at spreading the floor.

Doc as a GM is sh#t. What was the point of bringing in these players just to boot them not even a season later. He's done this every season he's been with the Clippers. As a fan I would be tired of his BS. He's awful.

stephenson is trash. orlando is rumoured to waive him if the deal goes through just to dump salary. even orlando doesn't want him

The magic got the better part of that deal. Not sure what you will do with Stephenson. If has his head on straight he's good. C.J. Wilcox never played because Doc doesn't play rookies, etc. But he can shoot. Frye was a waste of space on a team like the Magic. As a role player on a contender he's not a bad pick up.

A move like this would make up for potentially losing the Harris trade.

Doc doesn't seem to know what's up still, though, so no surprise. Frye needs to play backup C for 18mpg max. If Doc plans to move Blake for Melo and Lance/Wilcox/Brooklyn 2nd rounder for Frye, he's gonna have a worse team.

CP3-JJ-Melo-Frye-DJ

is not going to get them any closer to the WCF.

Bulls should go after Lance if/when he's waived. He'd be another ballhandler and would help Jimmy be able to defend lebron in a potential playoff series.

I don't think he will at this deadline, but I wouldn't be surprised if one of CP3/BG/DJ is gone in July.

As bad as Lance usually is, I don't think trading him for a floor spacing backup C is smart for the Clips, considering they are lacking in wings with size who can sorta play on both ends.
