Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Cavaliers forward Channing Frye announced that he's retiring after the season. The 35-year-old has spent four of his 13 NBA seasons in Cleveland. Frye was on the 2016 Cavs, who overcame a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals to win their first championship in team history. The former eighth overall pick made the announcement on social media.
