The Phoenix Suns have retained sweet-shooting big man Channing Frye.

The Suns and the 6-foot-11 Frye agreed to a five-year, $30 million deal late Thursday, a source with knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher.

The deal is expected to be finalized sometime after July 8.

The Suns had previously offered Frye a deal with a first-year salary of $3.5 million, according to a report in The Arizona Republic. However, the mid-level exception could be worth as much as $5.85 million and Drew Gooden (five years, $32M) and Darko Milicic (four years, $20M) raised the bar for power forwards when they signed earlier Thursday.

Frye made 173 3-pointers last season in his first year with Phoenix after splitting his first four seasons in the NBA between New York and Portland.

Frye was the eighth overall pick in 2005 by the Knicks.

Another contract that the Suns will regret in a few years.

Good Lord!!! Free Agency sucks for us. Unless we overpay, say goodbye to the possibility of getting felton or farmar.

Hopefully the Bulls will get no part of this free agency class.

I don't think that this is such a bad deal, he plays better D than Murphy and he shoots almost as many threes as him(remember the pacers pay Murphy 11mil a year)

It's looking like us not having any cap space this year may work to our benefit.

It may not necessarily be this summer unfortunately, but I think by the trade deadline, once people start looking at their teams and what they have done (or not done) during the season, that our expiring contracts will be extremely valuable with teams trying to rebuild or unload, like the Wizards had to do this past season, I could see a handful of teams having to do after all is said and done.

Meanwhile Frye gets half the rebounds...

Oh and Murph's contract is expiring!
The suns are stuck with Frye for at least 4 years.

trust me we all know were those rebounds come from, I would take Frye and his contract over Murphy at any time
