Lauren Lisoski is the gorgeous wife of NBA player Channing Frye, who’s currently a power forward/center for the Cleveland Cavaliers. He has previously played for the New York Knicks, Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, and Orlando Magic. Keep reading to learn about his wife, too!
Mr. Frye passed the chance to play with his current team in 2009, when he decided to play for the Phoenix Suns. Channing actually dreamed of playing with Steve Nash since he was in college at Arizona, but he signed there instead.
It was in 2016 that Channing Frye ended playing for the Cavaliers through two separate trades until they got Frye from the Orlando Magic. The team traded center/power forward Anderson Varejão and a protected future 1st round draft pick to the Trail Blazers in exchange for a 2nd round pick. Subsequently, the Cavs traded the 2nd round pick and guard Jared Cunningham to the Orlando Magic to obtain Channing.
THE FRYE MARRIAGE
Now that we had a little review of Frye’s career, let’s get back to his relationship with Lauren, but first, you should know that, according to this pretty lady’s Facebook page, she’s a Tualatin, Oregon native, where she attended high school and graduated in 2006 from the University of Oregon.
The couple dated for two years before getting married in August 2009. The wedding took place in the Garden Vineyards, in Portland, Oregon: Lauren’s home state. Mr. and Mrs. Frye were introduced in 2007 by a mutual friend on Channing’s first day after arriving in Portland. They all went for dinner, and there’s a funny detail about that night: Lauren pointed out that she knew anything about basketball and felt relaxed.
The couple has two children: Hendrix, who was born on October 4, 2010, and Margaux, in 2012. Their daughter was born without vision due to cataracts, so she had to go through five surgeries until she regained her vision before she was 2.
After facing that challenge, Lauren and Channing knew they could help other families by giving these life-changing opportunities, so they established The Frye Family Foundation at The Giving Back Fund, focusing on underprivileged children and kids with disabilities in many communities, especially in Portland and Phoenix.
This couple is so amazing! Giving back is quite important for this marriage, so we hope their foundation can help as many people as possible! Do you want to leave your thoughts in the comments box below?
