HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — The Phoenix Suns might not be in Amar’e Stoudemire’s future plans, but that doesn’t mean they won’t have to pay to keep their frontcourt rotation intact.
Channing Frye has already agreed to a five-year, $30 million deal — as massive upgrade from what he earned this season. Another reserve big man, Louis Amundson, appears to be the object of nearly a dozen team’s desire, such is life for an affordable and extremely productive role player of his size.
As much as this is the summer of big names like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, things are coming together rather beautifully for big men like Toronto’s Amir Johnson (5 years, $33 million), Milwaukee’s Drew Gooden (5 years, $30 million) and Minnesota’s Darko Milicic (4 years, $20 million).
It’s good to be tall this summer!
