Orlando, FL, United States (4E Sports) – In hopes of making an impressive run next season, the Orlando Magic sign Forward Channing Frye in a four-year, $32 million contract.

Frye who missed the rest of the 2012-2013 season due to an enlarged heart, was terrific last season as a starter for the Phoenix Suns.

The veteran forward from Arizona played all 82 games for the Suns, averaging 11.1 points and 5.1 rebounds.

Frye also connected on 37 percent of his shots from behind the arc.

The retooling Magic traded their leading scorer, Arron Afflalo, and waived veteran playmaker Jameer Nelson.

Now the team is relying on Frye to provide offensive spark from rainbow country and guide a young Magic squad.

According to ESPN, Frye is excited to come to Orlando to help the team.

“I’ve been on teams before where we were picked to finish last and we beat all the expectations and did very well. I’m excited to do the same in Orlando,” Frye stated.

The Magic also recently acquired Willie Green and will sign free agent, Ben Gordon.
