The Warriors' Andre Iguodala is recruiting former University of Arizona teammate Channing Frye to Golden State, where the free agent-to-be could fit in as a jump-shooting big man.

Frye, 31, shot 37 percent from 3-point range in what could be his final season for the Phoenix Suns after he declined a $6.8 million option, opting out of the final season of a five-year, $30 million contract.

"I've talked to Channing a few times," Iguodala told Sirius XM on Thursday. "I told him how great the Bay was. I told him how his family would enjoy it. I know his family well. My family knows his family, so it wouldn't be strangers. I would take care of him. If he needed a room, I got an extra room for him.

"I like to pass a lot. I passed to Channing a lot in college, so Channing knows that he'll be able to shoot the rock."

The Warriors could use Frye if they cannot complete a trade for Minnesota's Kevin Love, who would fulfill new coach Steve Kerr's desire for a forward whose range extends to the 3-point line.
