Report: Magic trading Arron Afflalo to Nuggets

Jun 26, 2014, 11:10 AM EDT

The Cavaliers won’t be trading the No. 1 pick for No. 4, No. 12 and Arron Afflalo.

Afflalo is already on the move.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

That’s an INSANELY low return for Afflalo, a strong two-way guard with a relative low $7.5 million salary.

Fournier, 21, is seven years younger than Afflalo, but Fournier is not nearly as good. Though he offers nice offensive skills, it’s unlikely he ever becomes as good. Afflalo is a fringe All-Star (in the East, at least). Fournier projects to become a solid rotation player, maybe not even a long-term starter.

The No. 56 is more valuable than nothing, but not much. I’m shocked the heavily shopped No. 11 pick wasn’t sent to Orlando from Denver.

Is this the first step to Denver trading for Kevin Love? Are the Magic clearing salary for a bigger move?

I’ve said the Nuggets should be looking toward the future, but Afflalo was too valuable to pass up. This is an excellent trade for Denver.

    Orlando keeps proving why they will never be well anything more.

    What a garbage trade? Was Afflalo a locker room cancer? The bucks would have given them Mayo and the 51st pick!!! That’s a deal!

    I remember when everyone reacted this way to the Dwight and J.J. trades, Orlando ended up the winner in both of those. We shall see what happens.

    Fournier is going to be pretty good, but you can’t tell me ORL couldn’t get anything better! New GM, same results. Gotta feel bad for that franchise. Real bad.

    would love to trade my shabby flat for a real mansion…were to find this orlando GM?

    Gosh..I don´t get it..why would you willingly do a trade that´ll be perceived as an act oh highway robbery with yourself being the victim??

    I like miami..Orlando should trade oladipo for cole, makes almost as much sense
