Arron Afflalo is the best veteran asset the Orlando Magic have, which means the rebuilding franchise will have to consider trades for the talented shooting guard.
The decision by General Manger Rob Hennigan to draft Indiana shooting guard Victor Oladipo in the first round of this year's draft made the team's future at the position evident.
It's clear that Afflalo will soon be on the move, as the Magic are still in the midst of rebuilding and are more interested in winning during the coming years rather than next season.
For the right package of assets, like a future draft pick and a young player, Hennigan would be foolish not to consider moving the player who was viewed as the centerpiece of the Dwight Howard trade.
Conjuring the right trade won't be without challenges though, as salary cap considerations will muddle matters in most situations. That being said, Hennigan has already proven that he is capable of making the most of unfavorable situations.
Let's put it this way, if Hennigan managed to win the Howard trade when it looked bleak, then he should have no trouble flipping Afflalo (who can be the starting shooting guard on a playoff team) for solid future assets.
