Arron Afflalo made his Trail Blazers debut on Sunday with eight points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench.
Afflalo hit one 3-pointer and he'll add some much-needed punch to the Blazers' second unit, but the trade to Portland spoils his fantasy value as long as Nicolas Batum and Wesley Matthews are healthy. Afflalo doesn't get many boards and assists, and he's even worse in defensive stats, so the 29-year-old veteran belongs on the waiver wire in most standard leagues. Feb 23 - 12:17 AM

Aaron Afflalo is excited about his recent trade to Portland, and he has said that he will accept any role that the team gives him as they look to make some noise in the Western Conference.

"I look at myself as a person that gives a team what it needs," Afflalo said. "If this team needs depth, if it needs scoring off the bench, if it needs a defensive stopper for segments, that's what I'm going to be." Afflalo's is going to come off the bench in Portland and play fewer minutes than he did in Denver, so even though he should see a decrease in production, his efficiency might rise with a much stronger supporting cast. Afflalo is by no means a must-own player anymore, but he's still worth a look for owners in need of 3-pointers.

Following Thursday's trade sending Arron Afflalo to Portland, Afflalo posted a video to his Instragram account stating: "It's championship time."

Afflalo will indeed give the Blazers' some much-needed depth, however, he will now see his minutes cut from the 33 minutes per game he was averaging with the Nuggets to somewhere in the mid 20s as a Sixth Man for the Blazers. The Blazers, as a team do take plenty of 3-pointers (second in the league in 3-point attempts per game), so Afflalo should be able to maintain some value, but his demotion to a bench role could end his status as a must-own guy in standard leagues.

The Blazers acquired Arron Afflalo and Alonzo Gee in exchange for a first-round pick, second-round pick, Will Barton, Victor Claver and Thomas Robinson.

Afflalo will come off the bench behind Wes Matthews and Nicolas Batum, though he's expected to miss Friday's game before making his debut on Sunday. He was playing 33 minutes per game in Denver this season, but he'll see minutes in the mid 20s now. While the Blazers do take a lot of treys, Afflalo's fantasy value takes a significant hit here. He can be dropped in standard leagues. Gary Harris, Randy Foye and Danilo Gallinari benefit most.

Denver is reportedly seeking a first-round pick and a second-round pick for Arron Afflalo, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

While Afflalo has drawn interest around the league, the Nuggets are asking for an awful lot considering Afflalo could elect to hit the open market after this season. If a deal is completed, however, Randy Foye, Gary Harris, and Danilo Gallinari would all stand to see a boost in fantasy value.

The Nuggets are sifting offers on Arron Afflalo on Wednesday with some "late-chargers" thickening plot, according to Yahoo! Sports.

The Blazers are still the frontrunner, but they'll have some competition. Afflalo is almost a lock to be dealt tomorrow and his fantasy value would take a hit. The Nuggets could have a fire sale, so it's tough to project which players will benefit. It could be Randy Foye, Gary Harris or Danilo Gallinari.

The Trail Blazers are reportedly the team the most likely to land Arron Afflalo by the trade deadline.

While Afflalo has been linked to the Kings, the Heat, the Thunder, and the Clippers, the Trail Blazers are reportedly the team with the most attractive assets to offer. Afflalo is also currently in a contract year, and the fact that he'll have the ability to walk during the offseason, may result in Denver being forced to come down a bit on their current asking price of a first-round draft pick. Afflalo would likely step into a Sixth Man role with Portland, and his value would take a hit.

The Kings are reportedly looking to reunite Arron Afflalo with new head coach George Karl.

Karl coached Afflalo during his last stint in Denver, and the Nuggets have made it no secret they are interested in dealing Afflalo. He would likely slide into the starting two-guard slot in Sacramento, which would really hurt the value of Ben McLemore. While nothing is imminent at this point, this is a situation we'll continue to monitor closely. Stay tuned.

The Oklahoma City Thunder reportedly have strong interest in acquiring Arron Afflalo from the Nuggets.

Afflalo would provide the Thunder with another scorer, but any deal will hinge on the Thunder (or other suitors) meeting Denver's request for a first-round pick or Nuggets willingness to budge from that asking price. Afflalo is averaging 14.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.5 three-pointers this season, but his fantasy value and minutes would likely take a hit if he's traded to a contender like the Thunder.
Feb 17 - 12:11 PM

The Nuggets want "multiple first-round picks" for either Arron Afflalo or Wilson Chandler on the trade market, according to Grantland's Zach Lowe.

We've heard the Nuggets want at least one first-rounder for each player, so while this isn't really new, it should highlight how unlikely it is Denver makes a deal if it holds to those demands. Unless the Nuggets get more realistic in their pursuit to shed contracts, it's looking likely that Afflalo and Chandler will remain put.

Arron Afflalo is more likely to be traded prior to the Feb. 19 deadline than Wilson Chandler, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Nuggets are expected to be a very active team with the deadline just over a week away, and it's not surprising to hear Afflalo's name surface in trade rumors. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reports that Denver has discussed possible deals with the Bulls, Clippers, Heat, Kings and Trail Blazers, but they may be demanding a first-round pick as compensation. Jameer Nelson and Randy Foye are also on the trade block, and anyone who owns a Nuggets player should prepare for a seismic shift in fantasy values in the coming week.

The Nuggets are reportedly seeking a first-round pick in exchange for Arron Afflalo.

Wilson Chandler is also expected to be available for a first-round pick, so it's clear that the Nuggets are starting to realize that this season has been lost. Both Chandler and Afflalo would likely lose value if they were traded, so it may not be a bad idea for their owners to sell-high while they still can. Expect the rumors to heat up as we approach the Feb. 19 trade deadline, and be sure to continually check back for updates.

Arron Afflalo played through the flu on Friday, managing just six points on 3-of-7 shooting with one rebound, one assist and one block in 23 minutes.

Afflalo hacking up a lung during the postgame interview was the first we heard of the ailment, and owners will want to downgrade his projections just a little until he gets back on the right side of the ledger. He's a late-round value on the year.
Feb 7 - 12:53 AM

Arron Afflalo scored 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block on Monday.

This will be one of Afflalo's better lines due to the versatility and barring a major change he'll continue to return reliable late-round value. Ty Lawson added 19 points and 11 assists in tonight's loss to the Clippers.
Jan 27 - 1:04 AM

Arron Afflalo scored 20 points on 6-of-13 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 7-of-7 FTs) with four rebounds and four assists in Friday's loss.

Afflalo has been productive lately but he's still just a late-round value for owners.
