Blockbuster Deals: Destinations for Afflalo

Arron Afflalo Trades

Since the deal with the LA Clippers fell through, many have wondered what Orlando's best option is to do with Afflalo. However, due to his skill level, the Magic need to make sure they get the right value for him. So here are some possible landing spots for him.

Phoenix

With this deal the following peices would be traded:

ORL Receives-

PG-Goran Dragic

SF- Harrison Barnes

GS Receives-

PG-Jameer Nelson

PF-Glen Davis

PHO Receives-

SG-Arron Afflalo

In my opinion, this trade would occur as a result of the recents tradings for Iguodala and Bledsoe. All teams in the deal would gain peices they need, or clear space for players to start. Due to the Iguodala deal, Harrison Barnes has now become a valueable,tradable asset for the Warriors. They would cash in by aquiring a starting caliber PG and a solid PF. Phoenix would also fill their need for a consistent SG in Afflalo, while only having to give up a no longer needed PG in Dragic. The Magic is the team that would give up the most. However, in turn they would receive two high caliber players that would be placed in the starting lineup right away. This deal makes sense for all teams in it, but will it happen is the real question.

Detroit

ORL Receives-

PG-Brandon Knight

SF-Khris Middleton

2014 1st Round Pick

DET Receives-

PG-Jameer Nelson

SG-Arron Afflalo

PF-Glen Davis

This trade makes sense for both sides, but for different reasons. The Magic would not receive as high a level of talent as the Pistons will. However, the Magic are in rebuild mode so they are looking to get young as well as shed some of the veteran salaries. Brandon Knight would immediatly be inserted into the starting lineup and the Middleton would become a valueable role player(hopefully). The real peice of the trade that the Magic want is the draft pick. It's no secret that next years draft is going to be possibly the best since the 2003 NBA Draft, so the Magic will definitly be looking to pick up a high level of talent. It is also not a secret that the Pistons have had top 10 draft picks for what seems like the whole century.

Overall, both deal would help the Magic improve, while allowing them to get CAP space flexibility. If they are able to pull off either of these deals, they could have the potential to bounce back in the 2015 season.
