In an expected move, the Portland Trail Blazers are cutting ties with Channing Frye, this according to an article by the Oregonian's Jason Quick. By not giving Frye—the Blazers' best blogger and second best PF—a qualifying offer, he is free to seek out employment with another team (which he should find, no problem).

Frye's stay in Portland will probably best be remembered by his deep love for the city, and less for his limited time spent on court. He was the only Blazers player to make Portland his full-time home during the off-season, and was, without question, the nicest/funniest voice in the locker room. You hear that Oden? Time to turn that frown upside down and be funny.

Hopefully Frye can land on a team that will give him some more playing time, and perhaps pay his salary entirely in Sweet Leaf tea. Good luck, man.
