Depends on which draft pick it is. Orlando has a few.
I like this deal although it'd help if we knew which draft pick it was. Afflalo is as unremarkable of a player as they come. We traded Ed Davis for Rudy Gay because we had Amir, and they traded Nicholson with the emergence of Tobias Harris, Vucevic, etc.
Jameer Nelson isn't the future of this franchise, so my guess is they plan to either let him walk or trade him when he's expiring. Either way, he's not the future and if I'm to be honest, he never was. He always seemed like the weakest link on that team even when they were contenders, and yes, even when they had Hedo.
Seems like a good gamble. We traded a first round pick for Lowry. They traded a first round pick and a prospect for Bledsoe. I guess they agree with me that Bledsoe has the potential to be better than Lowry. Even if you liked Afflalo, you can't disagree this team is still a couple years away from playoff talk. Afflalo really doesn't fit into the plan.
