  • Magic Trade Arron Afflalo To Nuggets

    Denver Nuggets acquire Arron Afflalo from Orlando Magic, according to sources - ESPN

    Nuggets got a steal.

    The Denver Nuggets have acquired guard Arron Afflalo from the Orlando Magic for guard Evan Fournier and the 56th pick in Thursday night's NBA draft, sources told

    It is a return to Denver for Afflalo, who played with the Nuggets from 2009 to 2012 before being traded to the Magic as part of the Dwight Howard trade. He is coming off a career season in which he averaged 18.2 points.

    The Magic seemed eager to move their top returning scorer because he has the option to become a free agent after next season, in which he will earn $7.5 million. He was mentioned often in numerous trade talks in recent days.

    The Nuggets acquired Afflalo using a trade exception.

    In return, the Magic get the developing Fournier, a native of France who is just 21 years old heading into his third season. The former first-round pick averaged 8.3 points and 2.7 rebounds last season for the Nuggets.
