Report: Magic trade Arron Afflalo to Nuggets


Arron Afflalo has been traded, but it’s not to his two rumored destinations of the Chicago Bulls or Cleveland Cavaliers. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports broke the news that the Magic have decided to trade Afflalo to one of his former teams, the Denver Nuggets.

As Wojnarowski reported, Evan Fournier and the 56th pick in the 2014 Draft will be sent back to the Magic, who had been rumored to offer Afflalo to both the Bulls and Cavaliers. The reported Cavaliers offer had Afflalo, 4th overall, and 12th overall pick in the 2014 Draft in exchange for the 1st overall pick, but that deal never came with legs.

Afflalo rejoins Denver after being traded in the Dwight Howard-Andrew Bynum-Andre Igoudala trade between the Lakers, Nuggets, Magic, and Sixers.

This past season, Afflalo averaged 18 points on 46% shooting percentage, one of his best offensive seasons of his career. Afflalo has two years left on his contract, including a player option after next season that could make him $7.75 million if he opts in following the 2014-15 season.
