ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) A person familiar with the deal says veteran forward Channing Frye has agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with the Orlando Magic

The person spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the deal can't be signed until July 10 under NBA free agency rules.

The 31-year-old Frye opted out of the final year of his contract with Phoenix to become an unrestricted free agent.

The signing gives the Magic added shooting, and a veteran after they jettisoned Jameer Nelson and Arron Afflalo.

After missing the entire 2012-13 season for treatment of an enlarged heart, Frye started all 82 games last season, averaging 11.1 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. He is best known for his long-range shooting, making 37 percent of his 3-point attempts last season.
