Last February at the trade deadline, the Cavaliers sent Channing Frye to the Lakers as part of the package that brought Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson to Cleveland for the playoff push (and sending Isaiah Thomas to L.A., shaking up a dysfunctional locker room).

Now the Cavaliers are bringing Frye back on a one-year contract, a story broken by Shams Charania of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports.

Free-agent forward Channing Frye has agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

That is a veteran minumum contract.

Frye will come off the bench and play mostly as as stretch five behind Tristan Thompson, although he can get some time at the four (where the Cavs are currently a little thin). Last season he took 54 percent of his shot attemtpt from three, hitting 33.9 percent of them.
