The Denver Nuggets have acquired guard Arron Afflalo from the Orlando Magic for guard Evan Fournier and the 56th pick in tonight's NBA Draft, sources told ESPN.com. Afflalo played for the Nuggets for three seasons before being dealt to Orlando on Aug. The Nuggets acquired Afflalo using a trade exception. The Nuggets have the No. 11 pick. Most impressive? Afflalo improved to 42.3 percent from beyond the arc after shooting just 30.0 percent from there in 2012-2013. The Magic seemed eager to move their top returning scorer because he has the option to become a free agent after next season, in which he will earn $8.6 million. Earlier in June, it was reported that the Chicago Bulls were interested in dealing for the off guard using any combination of first round draft picks, and because of the paucity of productive two guards in the NBA at the moment, it felt like his value would skyrocket higher and higher as draft season turned into the free agency period.
