Cavs' Frye to retire after NBA season
Cleveland Cavaliers veteran Channing Frye will retire at the end of the NBA season, the 2016 champion announced.
Reports of Frye's plans to retire surfaced after he placed a revealing post on his Instagram following a victory against the New York Knicks saying it was his last game in Madison Square Garden.
The 35-year-old Cavaliers forward – who was part of Cleveland's championship-winning team three years ago – confirmed his plans via Twitter on Friday.
"Yes, I am really retiring," he wrote. "It's been an amazing ride. I've had the chance to have some amazing team-mates and play for some great coaches. I'm gonna miss it but I'm super excited to see the other side of the fence!"
