(Afflalo) wouldn't mind being moved to a playoff team. The clock is ticking loudly on his career as he'll turn 29 in October. The Magic can select a point guard at No. 4 this month, perhaps a signal that Victor Oladipo would move to Arron's position full-time. Afflalo could be in play at the June 26 draft. Chicago, Charlotte, Phoenix and Oklahoma City could use two-guards and have multiple first-round picks. Orlando Sentinel

The buzz around the soon-to-be-resurrected Hornets is that a dependable small forward will surely be their top target in free agency ... and MJ will again have money to spend, if he can find a willing taker. Or Charlotte could certainly opt for trades to fill its nagging holes at both small forward and backup point guard if it fears the usual chilly summer chasing players on the open market. The rumbles have already begun that two players Clifford is said to regard with real fondness after working with them in Orlando as an assistant -- swingman Arron Afflalo and backup point guard Jameer Nelson -- will be among the Bobcats' trade targets.

Steve Kyler: The Magic continue to view Arron Afflalo as a piece that fits the big picture plan. His age and contract are workable no rush to change that. Magic view Arron as the right kind of veteran for their situation. His work ethic, impact on the team & the culture are valued tremendously. Twitter @stevekylerNBA

Scoring isn't the only category in which Arron Afflalo leads the Orlando Magic: no Magic player has been mentioned in more trade rumors in the lead-up to the NBA trade deadline, set for Thursday, February 20th. Afflalo said following Wednesday's loss to the Memphis Grizzlies that he's unaware of any potential trades involving him. "Obviously, now that it's approaching, management hasn't approached me with anything in particular," Afflalo said. Orlandoinstripedpost.com

With the NBA trade deadline just 10 days away things around the Magic are heating up on the trade front. Not necessarily because the Magic are making a ton of outgoing calls, but because there are several would-be suitors for Magic guard Arron Afflalo. The problem for the Magic, or the teams trying to extract Afflalo from the team, is that Orlando really does not seem overly interested in trading Afflalo. Basketball Insiders
