Arron Afflalo is thrilled to be joining the Knicks for the upcoming season.
Afflalo's agent said it was the "happiest" he's seen AA as a professional. Interestingly, Afflalo wanted to be moved to the Knicks at last season's trade deadline, but a deal never materialized and he was sent to the Blazers instead. "Learning the triangle, I just want to figure out everything about it, be able to embrace it and enjoy it and pick my spots within it," Afflalo said. "I'm really looking forward to this year."

Arron Afflalo officially signed with the Knicks on Thursday.

Afflalo will be the No. 2 option on offense behind Carmelo Anthony, but coming off a season in which he averaged just 13.3 points and 1.5 three-pointers per game on 42.4 percent shooting, he won't be worth much more than a late-round flier in standard leagues.

Arron Afflalo has signed a two-year deal with the New York Knicks.

Afflalo isn't exactly the splash that Knicks fans have been hoping for, but his two-year, $16 million contract will at least ensure that the team doesn't get shut out during the free agency process. The 29-year-old is coming off a lackluster 2014-15 campaign during which he averaged 13.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.5 three-pointers as a starter. We'll have to see if playing alongside Carmelo Anthony will help resurrect his game, but fantasy owners can treat Affalo as a late-round flier heading into standard league fantasy drafts.

The Knicks are frontrunners for Arron Afflalo in free agency.

The Knicks really need some help on the wing, so expect them to go after guys like DeMarre Carroll and Wesley Matthews, too. Afflalo had an abysmal finish with the Blazers last year, averaging 10.6 points, 2.7 boards, 1.1 assists, 0.4 steals and 1.4 treys on 41.4 percent from the field in 30.1 minutes. Afflalo wasn't great with the Nuggets last year either, so the Knicks will be hoping he can be more like the 2013-14 version of himself.

Arron Afflalo is officially an unrestricted free agent.

Afflalo had until the end of Monday to opt into a $7.7 million player option for 2015-16, but he did not file his paperwork and is officially on the open market. The 29-year-old will draw plenty of interest around the league, but he's not much more of a later-round fantasy target after averaging just 10.6 points in 25 games with the Blazers last season.
Jun 23 - 1:14 PM

Arron Afflalo is expected to decline his $7.8 million player option in favor of unrestricted free agency.

ESPN's Marc Stein reported the same thing in early May and it's not shocking since Afflalo never found a groove in Portland last season, averaging only 10.6 points on 41.4 percent shooting in 25 regular-season games. The 29-year-old should draw plenty of interest around the league for his defense and lethal 3-point shooting.
Jun 21 - 9:31 PM

Arron Afflalo is planning to opt out of the last year of his deal this summer, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

This is probably good news for the Blazers. Afflalo was a colossal letdown since the Blazers picked him up at the trade deadline. Plus, C.J. McCollum having a post-break explosion as a scorer suggests he's earned a role with 26-30 minutes with a usage rate over 20 next season. There's still two months before free agency starts, so expect several stories to change.
May 1 - 2:48 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) returned to action for Game 3 vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday, but he scored just five points on 2-of-5 shooting before fouling out in 27 minutes.

He did add six boards, one assist and one 3-pointer to his name, but he looked pretty rusty and he was clearly frustrated with himself after picking up so many cheap fouls. Afflalo wasn't playing well before the injury, so he is going to have to step it up if he doesn't want to lose more minutes to C.J. McCollum.
Apr 26 - 2:03 AM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) will start against the Grizzlies in Game 3 on Saturday.

He said on Friday that he's not 100 percent, but he has been able to go through practice. Afflalo hasn't played well whatsoever, so it should be interesting to see how tight of a leash coach Terry Stotts will have on him. Allen Crabbe will lose a ton of minutes while C.J. McCollum could lose a handful, too.
Apr 25 - 8:58 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is officially listed as probable, but he says he will play in Game 3 on Saturday.

"It's no time to get to 100 percent," Afflalo said. "You just go out there and give it your best." Afflalo isn't expected to have a minutes restriction moving forward and also said that he won't have any problems shooting from distance. It isn't clear what type of role he will have right out of the gate, but it's safe to say that Allen Crabbe and C.J. McCollum should expect to lose some playing time. However, Afflalo wasn't playing well before the injury which makes it tough to trust him in daily leagues.

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is probable to play against the Grizzlies in Game 3 on Saturday.

He was able to do some shooting before Wednesday, but his shoulder looked to be an issue on long-range shots. Afflalo was pushing a weighed sled on Friday, which suggests he's a lot closer to being healthy. C.J. McCollum played 37 minutes in Game 1 and just 29 minutes in Game 2, so maybe he's lost some playing time due to making just 19.0 percent from the field in the playoffs. Expect C.J. and Allen Crabbe to lose more minutes. Afflalo is still not someone fantasy owners can trust due to his lackluster numbers since joining the Blazers.
Apr 24 - 3:48 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) will not play against the Grizzlies in Game 2 on Wednesday.

He did warm up, but apparently isn't well enough to play. Afflalo has been focusing on his mid-range shots and looked to show pain as he was moving away from the rim, so perhaps his shoulder hurts more on deeper shots. C.J. McCollum will get most of the wing minutes next to Nicolas Batum.
Apr 22 - 6:30 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Game 2 against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

"If I can help in any way, whether it be 70 percent, 80 percent… I’m gonna get out there and do it," said Afflalo. He also added that if he can't go on Wednesday, he will almost certainly play in Game 3 on Saturday, and it sounds like he'll be a game-time decision for Game 2. He's not going to be 100 percent, but the Blazers could use all the help they can get right now, especially considering how much C.J. McCollum struggled through Game 1. When Afflalo returns to the lineup, he'll take away minutes from McCollum, and Allen Crabbe may fall out of the rotation entirely.
Apr 21 - 3:56 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) said that his goal is to play in Game 2 against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Afflalo stopped short of saying that he would actually play on Wednesday, but we'll likely get another update on his status following Tuesday's practice. It sounds like he could be headed for the dreaded game-time call on Wednesday, but if he is able to go, he'll take away minutes from C.J. McCollum and Allen Crabbe. Stay tuned.
Apr 21 - 2:48 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) could return for Game 2 vs. Memphis, according to CSNNW.

"Yeah, I'm good," Afflalo said when asked if he'd be ready for the next contest. All the Blazers have said was that he participated in some portions of practice on Sunday, and with players notoriously optimistic about their recoveries, especially in the playoffs, we're going to need to see harder news before declaring AA ready to return.
