Being an enforcer is attitude, not size. Actually, last I saw, Frye was listed at 245 lbs. That is certainly enough bulk, but I will agree that he doesn't have the bruiser mentality.

Trading for them would make no sense.

I wasn't saying to trade Frye for them. I was giving examples for the type of guys that teams would give up for him.

Ok, still I'm not worried about Frye's trade value because I think we are planning on keeping him for at least another year.

I really think that Outlaw is going to get some of his minutes backing up Aldridge at the power forward position. I'm thinking the addition of Diogu could be pointing to a trade of Channing Frye. Someone mentioned that Diogu is short - he IS only 6'8, but he has a 7'4 wingspan.
