Reaction: Arron Afflalo Agrees to Sign with the Magic

During the time he was with the purple and white, Afflalo recorded an abysmal defensive rating of 117.1 which was ranked 17th among the 19 players that suited up in a Kings uniform previous year.

A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Orlando Magic have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with veteran guard Arron Afflalo. The 25-year-old point guard posted 25.2 points and 5.8 assists last season for Cleveland and is under contract for two more seasons with a player option for a third year. He is a career 38.6 percent three-point shooter and shot 41.1 percent from beyond the arc last season with the Kings.

Afflalo will bring a much-needed veteran presence into a youth-infused Magic roster, providing them with a solid perimeter threat, an issue they've been looking to address since the start of the summer.

Given that the Magic recently signed free agent swingman Jonathon Simmons to a three-year deal, the addition of Afflalo could futher marginalize Mario Hezonja or signal that coach Frank Vogel envisions Hezonja playing as a backup power forward.

Aaron Afflalo has finally found a new team to play for in the upcoming National Basketball Association regular season. The Magic traded Afflalo back to the Nuggets on draft night in 2014 in exchange for Evan Fournier.

Previous year in Sacramento, Afflalo produced 8.4 points and 2.0 rebounds in 25.9 minutes per game.
