    Clippers decided to sleep on it. They should have agreed right away.

    I'm told the Magic don't plan on accepting the Anderson Varejao-for-Channing Frye offer from Cleveland that <a href="https://twitter.com/ESPNSteinLine">@ESPNSteinLine</a> reported. &mdash; Sam Amick

    least shocking move Hennigan has ever done. He may have been facing some mental issues lately (judging by his decisions) but at least he's not completely lobotomised.

    As the Los Angeles Clippers delay a decision on completing a deal for Orlando Magic forward Channing Frye, the Magic are becoming more motivated to move Frye to Cleveland into a trade exception, league sources told The Vertical.

    The Cavaliers can absorb Frye’s $8.2 million salary into a $10.5 million trade exception.

    The Clippers told the Magic they need until Thursday morning to decide on a deal that would send Frye to the Clippers for Lance Stephenson, C.J. Wilcox and a second-round pick, league sources said.

    The Magic have no desire to bring back Anderson Varejao’s contract in a deal, league sources said. Varejao’s deal includes two years and nearly $19 million guaranteed. The Cavaliers are searching out teams with space, such as Philadelphia and Portland, which could take on Varejao’s contract as part of a three-team trade, league sources said.

    Those teams would likely be compensated with draft considerations and cash to take on Varejao. For this reason, the Cavaliers won’t take on Frye without finding a home for Varejao’s deal: Those two contracts together on Cleveland’s roster would push the team’s luxury tax bill from $61 million to nearly $96 million in 2016.

    The Clippers have been exploring other trade possibilities that include Stephenson’s contract.

    Stephenson would never play a game for the Magic. Orlando plans to waive Stephenson – or trade him – if he’s acquired from the Clippers, league sources said. For Orlando, that deal would mostly allow the team to save money on the final year of Frye’s $8.2 million annual salary.

    why not? he can play both the 4 and 5 and shoot the 3. gives their lineup more versatility in what is becoming the norm of small ball

    The Magic got a 1st round pick for Frye. GM Lebron is MJeque in his trades.

    On offense, yes. But our problem is defense. He would have just made that worse.

    Plus he's getting $8 million / year through 2017-2018.

    Not a huge miss for the Rockets, IMO.
