Report: Cavs Exploring Trade Market for Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye
- Updated: June 19, 2017
The need for the Cleveland Cavaliers to implement changes on their roster for the 2017-18 season reportedly has them considering trading both Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye, though there appears to be some question about how much of a market exists for the players.
Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net reported that packaging the duo in a potential trade for Paul George of the Indiana Pacers is unlikely, with the Pacers presumably not interested in role players who could end up leaving as free agents next season.
Shumpert, who has also had injury issues throughout his career, has a player option for the 2018-19 season and is set to make $10.34 million for the 2017-18 campaign. Frye turned 34 years old last month and is set to make $7.42 million for this season, the last year of his contract.
However, those contract statuses could conceivably make Shumpert and Frye viable candidates for a team looking to shed salary after next season for what’s expected to be a strong free agent class. Regardless of what transpires, the expectation that the Cavaliers will be able to acquire an impact player by dealing the pair is considered a long shot, at best.
