Cavaliers deal pick to Magic for Frye

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — The Cavaliers acquired power forward Channing Frye from the Magic in exchange for Jared Cunningham and will send Anderson Varejao to the Trail Blazers in a three-team deal, according to reports Thursday. The Cavs also sent a first-round pick to the Blazers and acquired a second-round pick from the Blazers, which will go to the Magic.

The trade deadline was at 3 Thursday. There were no deals involving Dwight Howard, Kevin Love, Pau Gasol, Al Horford, or any other All-Star caliber player whose named was floated in recent days. Major moves will wait for the summer, when a soaring salary cap and a strong free agent class could provide fireworks.

Cunningham and Varejao are both expected to be waived, according to reports, but neither is eligible to return to the Cavs for one year under league rules.

Frye, 32, is averaging 5.2 points and 2.7 rebounds, shooting 40 percent on 3-pointers this season.

The Cavs have tried for weeks to dump Varejao's contract with no luck. But the Trail Blazers, with ample cap space, absorbed the remainder of his $9.7 million this season and his $9.3 million next season in exchange for a first-round pick that is top-10 protected for two years.

MORE KEY DEALS: The Suns traded forward Markieff Morris to the Wizards for a first-round draft pick and forwards Kris Humphries and DeJuan Blair. Morris never got over being upset about the Suns trading his brother Marcus in the offseason. … The Grizzlies traded forward Jeff Green to the Clippers for guard Lance Stephenson. … The Nuggets traded shooting guard Randy Foye to the Thunder for forward Steve Novak and guard D.J. Augustin.

  1. The legacy of Tim Tebow's baseball summer

    Minors

    CLEARWATER — It was about three weeks ago. A Saturday night. I sat behind home plate at a Charlotte Stone Crabs game at Charlotte Sports Park. There was a professional baseball scout sitting just behind me with a speed gun in his hand. He had seen the whole thing.

    Seth Bosch, left, of Punta Gorda, Fla., met Tim Tebow in Port Charlotte, Fla., in late July when Tebow, while in the on-deck circle during a game, shook hands with Seth through the backstop screen. The moment was captured on video by Seth's mother, as was the home run Tebow promptly hit in his ensuing at bat. Seth, who has high-functioning autism and other health issues, celebrated wildly and the video went viral. PHOTO PROVIDED
