People on here talking garbage about Afflalo have no idea about his game and what kind of player he is. He's a really good, clutch shooter, has very good basketball IQ, a decent defender and seems to get better each year. I would love to have a guy like that on my team, but it all depends on price. It would be tough to give up on Ross right now, and I probably wouldn't.
I still don't think that specific trade should be done (Ross + piece for Afflalo). I think that would create a Gay/DD situation since Aaron has a lot of similar qualities to DeMar.. I also like what Ross brings to the team. But it should not be an easy no.
We are no trading for Afflafo, but not because he is not a good player (he is), and I am sure MU wouldn't mind one bit having him. The problem is that Orlando's asking price is high for a team like the Raptors which are not ready to contend this year or the next.
demarcus has been putting up 'consistent' numbers because hes played CONSISTENT huge minutes ever since he joined SAC. hes always been on the floor for around 30 minutes right from the start.
afflalo started off getting minimal time on the floor and only gradually started getting more minutes as seasons went on with the various teams hes been on. obviously thats going to affect how many buckets you get.
thats like saying terrence ross fucking sucks cause last year he barely put any numbers up, without accounting how he was managed or the time hes had on the floor.
you're arguing the wrong points in the wrong way.
i'm NOT for the trade, but your argument doesn't help.
I used to be jealous of Aaron Afflalo...
That said, I like AA, but he isn't the final piece. He'd be awesome if they didn't lose one of the 5 starters, but I don't think it's worth breaking chemistry. This probably isn't the year to make knee jerk moves. The question is if there is a "star" player that does fit, is willing to not monopolize the ball, etc., who is young enough to fit in...
The Only thing Arron Afflalo has on T-Ross is that he has a rap song hahaha
He's 2 years away from being 2 years away, but his wingspan is already here .
A lot of you are sleeping on Afflalo because we don't get many Magic games (and Nuggets games in the past), but the kid is a fantastic player and would actually be a perfect fit for our team. He can defend his position, he can knock down his shots, especially in the clutch and he's a good rebounder. The only issue is that the Magic are going to want a small ransom for him - and rightfully so.
