ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Orlando Magic have completed their biggest free agency acquisition this summer with the signing of veteran Channing Frye.
   
Frye agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal last week, but officially signed with the Magic on Monday. Along with the signing of veteran Ben Gordon last week, the addition injects a veteran presence back into a locker room that lost Jameer Nelson and Arron Afflalo.
   
In Frye that means a coveted 6-foot-11 forward that general manager Rob Hennigan says he hopes will give the Magic offense the ability to stretch the floor.
   
The Magic also announced a minor deal with Chicago in which they acquired the contract of forward Anthony Randolph, two future second-round draft picks and cash in exchange for the draft rights to Milovan Rakovic.
