Trail Blazers News: Portland Inquires About Trade For Nuggets' Arron Afflalo

The Portland Trail Blazers have been linked to Denver Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler in trade rumors, but they're also reportedly gauging the market for his teammate, veteran guard Arron Afflalo.

Here's ESPN's Ramona Shelburne with the report:

Afflalo is currently in making $7.5 million in his eighth NBA season, and also has a player option for next season worth the same amount. In 52 games for the Nuggets this season, Afflalo is averaging 14.7 points per game on 42.8% shooting from the field and 34% shooting from beyond the arc. He is also posting 3.5 rebounds per contest while playing roughly 33 minutes per game.

Shelburne adds that Denver is seeking a first-round draft pick for Afflalo, so Blazers GM Neil Olshey will likely have to tread carefully, especially with the possibily of Afflalo walking to free agency come July.
