Default Rumor: Bledsoe/Butler for Afflalo

Sources say the Magic have a lot of interest in Clippers point guard Eric Bledsoe and would be willing to trade Afflalo for Bledsoe and Caron Butler's expiring contract. ESPN.com

Nice for both sides if that went through. Too bad though, I would love to have Afflalo come to the Raptors - wonder if he is even on the Raptors radar...

DeMar-Afflalo-Bledsoe/Butler (3 team)?

DeMar in the Lob City! They probably want shooting though.

That's a good trade for Orlando if they are indeed targeting McLemore. Cover the 1 and 3 spot then get a 2 in the draft.

I like that trade for the clippers. They get a lockdown defender and a solid 3 point shooter.

Yeah, a Bledsoe, Mclemore, Harris, Harkless and Vuc core is very nice. All in the span of a year. They'd have some nice trade chips come next offseason after another tank year.

I think this is also a very good trade for LA. They get the starting 2 guard they need, as Afflalo is actually capable of being a good scoring 2 guard who can give 13-16 PPG on a nightly basis and always plays good defence. They'd need to fill their starting SF void though, but its going to be difficult after paying CP3 a max deal and them being at 56 million with only 7 players signed going into next season.

If Pierce doesn't come to the Clippers for cheap, I think they should definitely look to re-sign Barnes anyway, and worst case scenario he's their starter on day 1 and a good pairing defensively with Afflalo. CP3/Afflalo/Barnes is a definite improvement over CP3/Billups/Butler, and then look to sign a good shooting bigman off of the bench for cheap, and a couple of low salary solid bench pieces.

I was really high on Bledsoe until a couple poster pointed out some flaws in another thread when we debating if the Raptors should go after Bledsoe in another thread

so I do have afflalo ranked ahead of bledose

with rudy gay on the team the Raptors would need a lock down defender and guy who'll sit in the corners to spread the offense, a guy like afflalo

would you rather have afflalo over demar?

knowing afflalo plays defense at a high level and his offense is pretty good
