NBA trade rumors: Orlando Magic offered Arron Afflalo to Golden State Warriors for Harrison Barnes, according to report

Harrison Barnes - Ezra Shaw

The Warriors declined the offer, and Orlando sent the veteran swingman to Denver instead.

The Orlando Magic traded Arron Afflalo to the Denver Nuggets the night of the 2014 NBA Draft, but details on another proposed deal involving the veteran swingman emerged Sunday: according to Ric Bucher of Bleacher Report, Orlando offered Afflalo and a future first-round Draft choice to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for Harrison Barnes.

Golden State, says Bucher, declined the offer.

Instead of landing Barnes from the Dubs for Afflalo, Orlando instead acquired Evan Fournier and the Draft rights to Devyn Marble from the Nuggets.

In the 2013/14 campaign, Afflalo enjoyed the most successful season of his career, posting per-game averages of 18.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists on 57.4 percent True Shooting.

The Warriors made Barnes, a North Carolina product, the seventh overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Across two seasons, the combo forward has averaged 9.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game. How he might have fit with Maurice Harkless, the Magic's incumbent starting small forward, is unclear, given how similar their styles of play are. But that problem is one that Orlando won't have to solve now.
