Earlier, in a trade deadline rumor post we shared about the possibility of Arron Afflalo being moved today. Well, that went from rumor to transaction a short while ago as the Portland Trail Blazers and the Denver Nuggets came to an agreement.
The underrated wing was traded to Portland, he’s seen as a piece that could push give them an added edge in their pursuit of a Western Conference title and NBA Championship. His addition gives Portland a very deep rotation on the wing, also provides some size at the two guard position.
Denver received Thomas Robinson, Victor Claver, and Will Barton in the deal. In addition to those three players, it’s reported (by Adrian Wojnarowski) that the Nuggets also got a first and second round pick from the Blazers.
Blazers will send Will Barton, Victor Claver, a future lottery protected 1st and a second-round pick to Denver for Afflalo and Alonzo Gee.
