Magic GM Shoots Down Arron Afflalo Trade Rumors, Hasn’t Talked to Clippers in Weeks


The Orlando Magic have been involved in a plethora of trade rumors primarily dealing with sending off Aron Afflalo to the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for Eric Bledsoe.

Magic general manager Rob Hennigan wants those rumors to be put to rest.

As Hennigan told Josh Robbins of The Orlando Sentinel, he has his doubts a trade will happen because he has not talked with the Clippers in three weeks:

“We haven’t had a drop or an ounce of communication with the Clippers for almost three weeks,” Hennigan said. “So, if we’re about to make a trade with them, I guess I missed that memo.”

Hennigan said he would be “stunned” if a deal occurred with the Clippers in the near future.

The report from Robbins goes on to detail that media outlets including ESPN have been linking the Magic and Clippers in trade talks for the past few weeks.

Either Hennigan does not want anyone to know of an impending deal, or a lot of folks have bad information about this one. Afflalo and Bledsoe have had their names in the news for quite some time now and it would not be all that surprising if either were dealt.

Keep an eye on this one. Orlando has been in the spotlight of rumors for quite some time now, and deservedly so. Take anything out of Orlando with a grain of salt this close to the draft.
