The Orlando Magic might not make any trades before the NBA trading deadline on February 20th, reports Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders. Orlando, he says, is "squarely on the fence" regarding potential deals.

Instead of making any deadline trades, Kyler says the Magic might wait and overhaul their roster near the 2014 NBA Draft.

Arron Afflalo, the NBA's 17th-leading scorer with a 20 points per game average, has drawn plenty of interest around the league, but Kyler says Orlando is likely to hold onto him "unless moving Afflalo yields another lottery pick or a means to thin out the roster."

Afflalo, Glen Davis, and Jameer Nelson are the three Orlando veterans around whose names most trade speculation has centered. A recent report indicated Orlando was "likely" to move both Davis and Nelson on or before February 20th.

Kyler's full story has more updates on several teams' statuses entering the deadline.
