Arron Afflalo said he's never been more eager to prove his worth as a player.
"I can say this is probably the hungriest I’ve ever been in my life, just to prove myself as a player, not for selfish reasons, but just to show that I can really be a part of a team and help them go to the next level," Afflalo said. "Sacramento wasn’t too far from making the playoffs. That’s my goal, just to work hard and get these guys on the right train and get us into the playoffs." He signed a two-year, $25 million deal, so he's likely going to be the starting shooting guard on opening night. Regardless, he's a low-end asset at best after averaging 12.8 points, 3.7 boards, 2.0 assists and 1.3 triples last season. Jul 22 - 12:21 PM

Unrestricted free agent Arron Afflalo has agreed to a two-year, $25M deal with the Kings.

The Kings continue their search for a shooting guard and get Afflalo on a short, solid deal. He will enter his age-31 season and it'll be interesting to see how his post-up game meshes with DeMarcus Cousins. Afflalo won't be getting a ton of shots once again, so his fantasy value doesn't increase here. This addition makes it less likely the Kings land Dion Waiters.
Jul 2 - 2:52 PM

Arron Afflalo will reportedly opt out of his contract, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.

This was the expected move all along, as Afflalo made numerous comments throughout the year about being upset with regards to how he was utilized in New York. Afflalo will now be free to sign with a team of his choosing, but after compiling averages of just 12.8 points and 1.3 triples per game with the Knicks this past season, it's unlikely he'll be able to establish himself as a standard league asset next year.
Jun 21 - 2:24 PM

Arron Affalo is expected to opt out of his player option for the 2016-17 season.

Affalo hasn't made a decision yet on his $8 million option for next season, but he is expected bet on himself and opt out. The 30-year-old averaged 12.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.3 treys in 2016-17 and won't be much of a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues no matter where he ends up.

Arron Afflalo said that he still views himself as a "premier two-guard" in the league, and implied that he'll be opting out of his contract if a starting spot in New York's backcourt is not guaranteed.

"I still believe I'm one of the premier two guards in this league and part of being an elite two guard in this league is opportunity," Afflalo said. "You have to be in a certain environment where you can excel and show what you can do and hopefully that contributes to winning. And I still believe I'm that player so I'll find the best opportunity for me whether it's in New York or anywhere else." It doesn't seem very likely that Afflalo will be back with the Knicks next season.

Arron Afflalo will likely wait until the late-June deadline to decide if he'll opt-out of his contract.

Afflalo has until late-June to decide he'll pick up his $8 million player option and said he'll likely take his time on the decision. Afflalo is all but certain to exercise his option after expressing displeasure with his bench role in New York, so we'll probably see the 30-year-old in a new uniform next year. While a bounce-back season is always a possibility, it's hard to look at Afflalo as anything more than a late-round flier in 2016-17 drafts after averaging just 8.0 points per game in 2015-16.
Apr 12 - 12:54 PM

Arron Afflalo missed his lone field goal attempt on Sunday, finishing scoreless with three boards and one assist in 23 minutes off the bench.

The Knicks were surprisingly competitive in this game, keeping it close before falling 93-89 to the visiting Raptors, so Afflalo's lack of production is even more glaring. He's expressed displeasure with his bench role and is all but certain to opt out of his $8 million player option this summer.
Apr 10 - 10:25 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 15 points with eight boards, two assists, one block and one steal in 34 minutes vs. the Pacers on Sunday.

He was just 5-of-15 from the field, but he had to be aggressive with Carmelo Anthony (rest), Kristaps Porzingis (shoulder) and Jose Calderon (quad) all on the shelf. Afflalo is playing for a new deal this summer, but his fantasy value has taken a major hit since his move to the bench. Unless Anthony gets another night off to rest, Afflalo will be difficult to rely on outside of deeper leagues.
Apr 3 - 10:28 PM

Arron Afflalo came off the bench on Wednesday with just three points on 1-of-7 shooting, three rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

Afflalo made it clear that he's unhappy with a reserve role but said that he hasn't spoken about it with coach Kurt Rambis -- which is odd, because Rambis said they have spoken about it. It's a strange situation that dents Afflalo's fantasy appeal and makes it more likely that he'll opt out of his contract this summer.
Mar 30 - 11:46 PM

Arron Afflalo made it clear that he is not happy coming off the bench in New York.

"Frustration ain’t the word," Afflalo said of his reserve role. "It is what it is." Kurt Rambis said that Sasha Vujacic brings more "speed" and a "level of activity" to the first unit than Afflalo, but Afflalo clearly does not agree with that assertion. Afflalo also maintains that the interim head coach never had a conversation with him regarding a permanent move to the bench, and with AA's season ending on a sour note, he seems very likely to opt out of his deal this offseason. As a reserve for the Knicks, Afflalo isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 30 - 2:10 PM

Arron Afflalo is expected to remain in his bench role for the remainder of the season.

Kurt Rambis said he doesn't intend to change his starting lineup or rotations with the Knicks officially eliminated from the playoff picture, so AA should get used to his sixth man role. He's really not an appealing asset, is not a specialist and carries basically no upside. You should be able to do better.

Arron Afflalo hasn't decided if he will exercise his player option for the 2016-17 season.

Coach Kurt Rambis recently moved Afflalo to a sixth man role off the bench, and he was asked how that would impact his decision this summer. "It's one of those things I'll have to weigh in June," Afflalo said. "But hopefully an entire body of work is looked at on both ends." He's averaging 10.8 points, 4.4 boards, 2.8 assists and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five games and isn't a great asset in standard leagues.

Mar 26 - 9:31 AM

Knicks coach Kurt Rambis implied that Arron Afflalo will continue to come off the bench the rest of the season.

"This is not a punishment," Rambis said. "It’s more his natural position." Afflalo has an opt-out this June, so the Knicks might be driving down his market value and may want him to come off the bench if he returns next season. The veteran is averaging 10.8 points, 4.4 boards, 2.8 assists and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five games and is a shaky option in fantasy.
Mar 25 - 9:59 AM

Arron Afflalo came off the bench on Wednesday for 12 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in 35 minutes, making 5-of-13 shots including one 3-pointer.

Kurt Rambis seems inclined to keep Afflalo on the bench to infuse scoring into the second unit, but he's still getting plenty of minutes. The veteran is a shaky value due to a lack of supporting stats, so any poor shooting nights are extra damaging. Leave him on the wire in standard leagues.
Mar 23 - 11:27 PM

Arron Afflalo will return to the bench for Wednesday's game vs. Chicago with Carmelo Anthony (migraine) back in the starting lineup.

Sasha Vujacic will earn another start at shooting guard tonight, but he's connected on a total of zero shots over his past two outings, and remains a non-factor in all leagues. Afflalo's numbers will take a hit with the demotion to the second-unit, and he's not a great option in most leagues on Wednesday's busy 12-game night.
