The Orlando Magic have agreed to trade Arron Afflalo to the Denver Nuggets in exchange for Evan Fournier and the 56th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The trade will not be official until after the Draft on Thursday night, says the veteran scribe.
Orlando acquired Afflalo, now 28, from Denver in August 2012 as part of the four-team Dwight Howard trade. In his most recent Magic season, Afflalo averaged All-Star-caliber numbers of 18.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists on 45.9 percent shooting from the floor. His 42.7 percent mark from three-point distance ranked sixth in the league.
Afflalo is due $7.5 million in the 2014/15 season, with a player option for $7.5 million the following year, according to ShamSports' salary database. Afflalo seems likely to decline that option.
In two professional seasons, Fournier has averaged 7.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game on 43.5 percent shooting form the floor and 38.1 percent shooting from three-point range. Denver made the 6-foot-6 shooting guard the 20th overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft.
Following this deal, the Magic are equipped with the fourth, 12th, and 56th picks in Thursday's NBA Draft.
