The first NBA trade deadline domino to fall was Arron Afflalo.
The Nuggets moved Afflao and Alonzo Gee to the Portland Trail Blazers for Will Barton, Victor Claver, Thomas Robinson and a protected lottery pick in 2016.
Afflalo adds depth to the guard position for the Blazers both offensively and defensively. Averaging 14.5 points per game, Afflalo has struggled shooting the ball this season, but perhaps being placed in a playoff chase will motivate him. He can opt out of his contract after this season.
Despite shooting just 42 percent on the year, Afflalo presents a clear improvement for Portland:
Arron Afflalo: shooting 50.2% on mid-range shots this season, #1 among players w/at least 200 such FGA.
POR shoots 39.5%, 21st in the NBA
