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.

  3. Rays journal: Jake Odorizzi to continue pitching from stretch

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Less proved to be more for RHP Jake Odorizzi during his last start when he pitched exclusively out of the stretch. The result was seven one-hit innings in the Rays' 3-2 win Monday at Oakland.

    Rays starter Jake Odorizzi says that pitching from the stretch “limited the movements prior to throwing the pitch, and that changed a lot of things” in a superb outing last week.
