NBA trade rumor: Magic rejecting offers for Arron Afflalo, according to report

Arron Afflalo - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

A report indicates the Magic are not interested in trading the NBA's 10th-leading scorer.

The Orlando Magic have rebuffed all trade calls regarding swingman Arron Afflalo, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports in his weekly NBA power rankings column. In response to trade inquiries about Afflalo, "Orlando keeps saying no, a source said," according to Spears.

Afflalo is enjoying the finest season of his seven-year career: the 28-year-old is averaging 21.8 points per game, the 10th-best figure in the league, to go with 4.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists. He is under contract through the 2015/16 season at $7.5 million per year, according to ShamSports' salary database, with the 2015/16 season at his option.

With Afflalo's trade value at an all-time high, the Magic face little urgency with regard to dealing him, especially given his bargain contract. Trade offers for the UCLA product could become richer as the NBA's trading deadline, set for February 20th at 3 PM Eastern, draws nearer.
