A few days ago, a report leaked suggesting many NBA general manager’s felt the Orlando Magic, despite their efforts to suggest otherwise, will eventually trade Arron Afflalo.
Now we hear from ESPN’s Chad Ford that Afflalo is available, though, the Magic have declined a handful of trades for the swingman.
He’s available, but the Magic have turned down a number of scenarios. It sounds like they want more than that for Afflalo. It might be that since they balked at Eric Bledsoe, they feel like they have to get equal value to that. Good luck.
Ford was addressing a fan’s question in regards to the Magic’s asking price, something the ESPN insider admitted he (nor any NBA teams) seem to know at this point.
If they’re looking for an Eric Bledsoe type trade, that’s going to be difficult to find. Though with Afflalo not in the final year of his contract, the Magic certainly don’t have to make a move unless they feel it benefits them moving forward.
