Blazers guard Arron Afflalo has no issues with reserve role


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2015) Although Trail Blazers guard Arron Afflalo has been a starter for most of his career, he said he has no issues with coming off the bench, reports The Oregonian.

"Obviously, this group here was a very good team before I got here. And they've had great chemistry together," Afflalo said. "With the in-season trade, I don't think [starting] matters. I think you just come in here, you play your role, and you do what it takes to help the team win."

Afflalo was acquired by the Blazers during a trade deadline deal with the Nuggets and he said he'll do whatever it takes to contribute to the team's success.

"I look at myself as a person that gives a team what it needs," he said. "If this team needs depth, if it needs scoring off the bench, if it needs a defensive stopper for segments, that's what I'm going to be."


Nuggets, Blazers trade not great for Fantasy owners


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) The Trail Blazers made move that has a good chance of improving their playoff standing down the stretch, but Fantasy owners probably aren't too happy about the team's acquisition of Arron Afflalo Thursday. At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I broke down what the trade could mean for Afflalo and Nicolas Batum, and it isn't pretty:

"Afflalo can spell both wing spots and do a passable imitation of either Batum or Matthews, so he should see a decent amount of minutes. However, even if Batum settles in around 28 per game, that doesn't leave much room for Afflalo to get to the 30-minute threshold, and I would bet he doesn't. His best Fantasy season came as a go-to scorer on a bad Magic team, and he hasn't come close to replicating that on a much deeper Nuggets team. This Blazers team has little room for an extra scorer, so Afflalo takes a hit here.

In the end, you probably see both Afflalo and Batum slide down the rankings. Afflalo was just 49th in Fantasy points per game at the forward position before the trade, and is an easy bet to fall out of the top-50 moving forward. He has little value if you play him at guard, and is probably just a reserve at forward as well. Batum probably falls from 34th out of the top-40 at forward, a precipitous decline for a guy who was a borderline No. 1 forward a year ago."

Afflalo could be droppable in many Fantasy leagues, while Batum's bad season has only gotten worse. 


Nuggets send Arron Afflalo, Alonzo Gee to Blazers


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) The Nuggets agreed to trade guard Arron Afflalo and forward Alonzo Gee to the Trail Blazers, league sources confirmed to CBSSports.com NBA Insider Ken Berger.

In exchange for Afflalo and Gee, the Trail Blazers will send Will Barton, Victor Claver and a 2016 lottery-protected first-round pick to Denver. If the pick is not traded by 2017, it would turn into two second-round picks. The Nuggets will also receive Thomas Robinson.

Report: Blazers prefer Nuggets' Wilson Chandler to Arron Afflalo


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) The Trail Blazers are on the search for a wing player before the trade deadline, and they've shown a stronger desire to deal with the Nuggets for Wilson Chandler than Arron Afflalo, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Part of the reason that the Blazers are more inclined to pursue Chandler is that he's already under contract next season. The team has made a future first-round pick, Will Barton and Thomas Robinson available in its pursuit for an upgrade on the wings, though the Blazers are more likely to put together a better package for Chandler than Afflalo, per the report.

Chandler has averaged 13.9 points and 6.0 rebounds in 52 games while shooting 42.0 percent from the field.


Report: Clippers trying to use Crawford to land first-round pick


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

If successful, the Clippers would use the pick to make a competitive offer for Nuggets wing players Wilson Chandler or Arron Afflalo, per the report. The Clippers also continue to have an interest in Suns shooting guard Gerald Green. The Clippers also scouted Hornets shooting guard Lance Stephenson but decided to move on without making a serious pursuit.

Crawford has averaged 16.0 points on 39.1 percent shooting in 53 games.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2015) The Trail Blazers, Bulls, Clippers, Heat and Kings are among the teams that have discussed a possible trade with the Nuggets involving shooting guard Arron Afflalo, reports Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Nuggets are more likely to move Afflalo than small forward Wilson Chandler.

Afflalo is due to make $7,750,000 and has a player option at the end of this season, which could make him an unrestricted free agent in the summer. As of last week, the Nuggets were reportedly seeking a first-round draft pick in exchange for Afflalo, but that still remains to be seen. The trade deadline is Feb. 19.


Report: Nuggets want first-rounder in exchange for Arron Afflalo


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/7/2015) With the trade deadline nearly two weeks away, the Nuggets are shopping shooting guard Arron Afflalo. And much like small forward Wilson Chandler, Denver is asking for a first-round pick in return for any deals involving Afflalo, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

According to Dempsey, the interest remains high on Afflalo, but teams aren't willing to part ways with a first-round selection for a player that could walk away at the end of the season. He is due to make $7,750,000 and has a player option at the end of this season, which could make him an unrestricted free agent in the summer.

Afflalo is Denver's second-leading scorer, averaging 14.9 points per contest.


Nuggets' Brian Shaw shoots down Chandler, Afflalo trade rumors


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) Nuggets coach Brian Shaw told reporters his team is not making calls to deal small forward Wilson Chandler and shooting guard Arron Afflalo, per the Denver Post.

"I just have to try to do a good job of assuring them that I'm not, and we're not, actively shopping them and putting them out there," Shaw said. "Obviously calls come in, and we field calls. But we're not saying, 'Hey, we're trying to get rid of Arron, we're trying to get rid of Wilson.' That's not the case at all. That's all we can really tell them."

The Nuggets have been receiving many calls for Chandler and Afflalo since moving center Timofey Mozgov to the Cavaliers, according to a previous report from Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. Chandler, a seven-year veteran, remains cautiously optimistic of his future in Denver.

"If a deal comes along that's a pretty good deal, you've got to make it of course," Chandler said. "And some guys say they're not going to trade you, and then they trade you. I'm not saying that (Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly) is that guy, but you never know. You can never feel too safe about anything."
