Sonoran Hot Reads: Channing Frye traded to the Cavs

Will the NBA Finals have even more Wildcats this year?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Last year's NBA Finals had plenty of Arizona flavor in it. And after Thursday's NBA trade deadline, there's reason to believe there will be even more as the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Channing Frye from the Orlando Magic. This is what Cavs GM David Griffin had to say about Frye:

"Channing Frye is someone we know well. His length, floor spacing ability and locker room presence will impact us positively," said Griffin. "He is a great fit with our group, both on the court and off, and we look forward to Channing, his wife Lauren, and their children, Hendrix and Margaux joining us here in Cleveland."

Frye is averaging 5.2 points and 3.2 rebounds per game this year

- Kaleb Tarczewski is savoring his final games in McKale Center


- ESPN has Arizona's secondary as a "we'll see" situation, even though one of the players they have listed doesn't actually play defense anymore. The running backs are in "good shape", although one of them is no longer at Arizona. Good job, good effort
