    Aaron Afflala has only had one, just one sub-110 DRTG season. Now that stat isn't the all be all, but we the heck man............

    That was a comment somewhere yesterday.

    So, what is P-Zen telling teams he would accept in a Melo SnT?

    Wouldn't be shocked if the Bulls offered something along the lines of Gibson+Mirtoic+one of their two firsts this year for him

    What is Orlando looking for in this scenario?

    They have plenty of cap space and I doubt Chicago thinks Afflalo is worth Mirotic. Maybe they just want a 1st rounder and an expiring?

    Also, acquiring Afflalo would significantly decrease the amount of money Chicago could offer Melo...unless NYK agree to take on Boozer's $15 million

    Love to Houston
    MIN's 1st round pick to ORL
    Afflalo to HOU
    Harden to MIN
    Lin to ORL

    Done!

    Likely something of value that can grow with their younger "core."

    Afflalo can opt out after this season, requiring them to either sign a 30-year-old player to a long term deal or maybe lose him for no assets in return. So, given that ORL isn't likely to win much in 2014-15, they might as well getting an asset for him now.

    These are the type guys we should be targeting, but are too focused on Melo. All the while the Spurs keep winning with Patty Mills, Danny Green & Kawhi Lenoard:rolleyes:

    I always wanted Afflalo here. Wanted him as a sixth man and backup for Harden.

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Unclear how Afflalo talks affect FA plans. Guess would be if Bulls land him, this is the &quot;fuller roster&quot; plan.

    would be a solid pick up for the bulls, they must are going to trade butler to another team if this happens. Affallo brings more offense and same defense that butler plays and THIBBS is there, also affalo has 2yrs left on his contract vs butlers 1, they would have to pay him the same affalo makes with less offense anyway to keep him.

    gotta be proactive just incase they strike out on a big time free agent or can attract them more with affalo there... since cant depend of rose health.

    wouldnt mind morey making a play for FRYE's $6.8 expiring if he opts in.

    Smart, smart move.

    Affalo is so underrated it's not even funny. He is coachable, wants to win and can play 1-3 if necessary.

    Met him once back in Denver. Very down to Earth. He deserves to be paid and to be on a legitimate team.

    Orlando is full of D-Leaguers

    :eek:

    Butler was 2nd team all-defense. Afflalo was...not

    Afflalo is 28, Butler is 24

    Points are cheap in this league, defense is expensive

    This move would NOT make Butler expendable

    Makes sense. I would imagine that Gibson is moved for Afflalo, Boozer is amenstied and Mirotic is made the starting 4
