Arron Afflalo made 5-of-8 from the field for 11 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.
His days of being the primary scoring option are behind him, so that should cost him some fantasy value. Afflalo is more of a late-round target for owners looking to bolster their treys. Oct 17 - 12:42 AM

Arron Afflalo said he's ready for a leadership role with the Denver Nuggets and would like to be a team captain.

Afflalo was careful not to overstep his bounds when asked about his desire to be the captain his new team. "It's the ability to be vocal at the right time. Understanding your players. How to be vocal with each and every individual on your team and uplifting them," Afflalo said. "That's the main thing for a leader is [to be] somebody that they want to follow and can be uplifted by." The 28-year-old is coming off a career season in Orlando and should see enough run to warrant a middle-to-late round fantasy selection in standard leagues.

Arron Afflalo thinks the Nuggets can be title contenders in 2014-15.

"I'm happy to be back in Denver, I got some very familiar teammates," Afflalo said. "I believe this is a championship team under the right mindset and coaching." Affalo begins his second stint in Denver coming off a 2013-14 season with Orlando during which he averaged career highs in points (18.2), rebounds (3.6), and assists (3.4), while adding 1.8 three-pointers per game. Afflalo will likely be underrated heading into 2014-15 fantasy drafts and will see plenty of run in Denver that should help him outproduce his draft spot.

Denver Nuggets trade for SF Arron Afflalo.

The Nuggets have traded Evan Fournier and a second round pick to the Orlando Magic in return for Afflalo, who will begin his second stint with Denver. Afflalo averaged 18.2 points, 1.8 three-pointers, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in his second season with the Magic and will continue to be a valuable source of 3-pointers for his fantasy owners in Denver. Fournier is a solid bench player, but the move seems like a bit of a head scratcher for Orlando as the main benefit of the trade comes in the form of $6 million of salary cap relief.

The Clippers have reportedly discussed trading for Magic SG Arron Afflalo, and the teams "could revisit those talks later if they morphed into a three-team discussion."

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, the Clippers have "coveted the former UCLA star Afflalo for several years," though of course they also have "strong interest" in clearing enough cap space to pursue free agents LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. Afflalo has also been linked to trade talks with the Bulls and Cavaliers, and it would be very surprising if he's not dealt before training camp.

The Magic have reportedly offered the fourth pick, the 12th pick and Arron Afflalo for the Cavs' top pick in the draft, according to ESPN.com.

Interesting. Afflalo has said he'd want to go to a contender and the Cavs would at least have a shot to make the playoffs even before they get a chance to make a splash in free agency. He'd also be a nice fit as a perimeter player for the Cavs, especially given their massive hole on the wing in the Kyrie Irving era. This offer is in the same ballpark as the Jazz reportedly offering Derrick Favors and No. 5 or the Sixers offering Thaddeus Young and No. 3.

The Bulls are pursuing a trade to acquire Arron Afflalo, according to Yahoo! Sports.

It's no secret that Afflalo is available in a trade. He has also been rumored to be traded for the 11th pick of the Nuggets, so the Bulls are not only ones going after him. If the Bulls do add him, it would likely hurt their chances of bringing in Carmelo Anthony.
Jun 21 - 10:36 AM

Arron Afflalo could be traded to the Wolves as part of a potential Kevin Love deal.

It would be a three-way deal with the Nuggets and would likely be for the 11th pick in the 2014 draft. Afflalo has said he wants to be traded to a contender and the Magic seem like they're willing to listen to his request. Chances are there will be more offers for the Magic.

Arron Afflalo wouldn't mind being move to a playoff team, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

He reportedly added he would like to do so because he doesn't have many years left in his prime. The Magic are nowhere near contending for a title and are expected to take another backcourt player with the fourth pick in the draft. The 28-year-old swingman led the team in scoring in 18.2 points per game, but a move to a different team would undoubtedly hurt his fantasy value.
Jun 7 - 3:11 PM

Arron Afflalo was aggressive on Wednesday and hit 9-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 25 points, four rebounds and five assists in Tuesday's win.

He had gone eight games without scoring 20 or more points and just hasn't looked aggressive since the All-Star break. He looked like a different player tonight, but we'll have to see him do this again before declaring him fully back to form. And we're running out of time.
Apr 9 - 10:22 PM

Arron Afflalo scored eight points on 3-of-9 shooting in Sunday's loss to Toronto.

The veteran SG is scoring 16.0 points per game in March, but he's doing it on 41.1 percent shooting. He's typically a reliable contributor in points, 3-pointers and even percentages, but his fantasy value is severely damaged by a lack of steals (0.5 per game) and blocks (two all season).
Mar 30 - 8:37 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 20 points vs. the Suns on Wednesday during a 109-93 loss, adding three boards, one assist and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He rebounded nicely from a four-point game on Tuesday which was his lowest all season. Afflalo's treys have really tailed off this month and his overall efficiency has dropped off as well, but he should snap out of this funk soon. Looking at the schedule, things are looking up for him with games against the Jazz on Saturday, Lakers on Sunday and Blazers on Tuesday.
Mar 20 - 1:58 AM

Arron Afflalo hit just 2-of-7 shots and zero 3-pointers for four points in Tuesday's loss.

He played just 22 minutes and isn't hurt, as far as we know. He had scored in double figures in nine straight games coming in, and also hit seven 3-pointers over his previous four. He was worked over by Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry tonight, and didn't even play in the fourth quarter. Expect him to bounce back on Wednesday against the Suns.
Mar 19 - 2:25 AM

Arron Afflalo scored a team-high 24 points against his former team during a 120-112 loss on Wednesday, adding one board, two assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

It didn't take long for Afflalo to get back in a groove in scoring the ball after returning from an ankle injury on Mar. 5. In those four, he averaged 17.8 points, 3.5 boards, 0.5 steals and 1.3 triples in 33.8 minutes per game. Double A hasn't quite been as great as he was earlier this year, but he's still a must-start player.
Mar 12 - 10:18 PM

Arron Afflalo returned from an ankle injury on Wednesday and hit 8-of-16 shots (0-for-4 from downtown) for 18 points, four assists and a steal.

He played 31 minutes and looked healthy, and this may be his last game for a while without a 3-pointer. Get him back in your lineup.
