    If Denver expect Afflalo to fill Danthay Jones' role they'll be awfully disappointed. The Jones departure to Indiana will hurt them more than they think...with Smith as a starter, and Kleiza leaving, the Nuggets bench suddenly became very thin.

    I would seek a trade for someone like Flip Murray...someone who can provide offense from the bench. Atlanta is loaded with guards now anyway so who knows...

    Why? Afflalo>Jones. I think he is.

    I think they'll start afflalo and keep smith on the bench for firepower. Afflalo is a decent option at the 2.
    Miami Heat:......Fill the roster out with some decent signings

    New Orleans Saints: 9-3
    First in NFC South. 3rd seed

    You have to be more eleborate than a simple ">". Afflalo is talented, but Denver has plenty of talent at the perimeter...but toughness and hardnosed defense that Jones provides is something Afflalo can't provide.

    Maybe playing with his old teammate Chauncey will rub off on him who knows. Either way, it's still a decent move...and adresses the lack of depth somewhat.

    Jones was solid, but don't overrate him. Afflalo plays pretty good defense, and can create for himself better then Jones can.

    Affllalo can flat out defend, i think he's one of the best man to man defenders in the whole league, good replacement for Dahntay Jones and may be an upgrade

    Red Sox, Ravens, Thunder, Blackhawks, UConn and Penn St. Fan!

    I think it was good for Detroit as well. With the signing of Ben Gordon and the emergence of Deron Washington (kids gonna be a stud). I think the extra money will help them get a big.

    Afflalo is going to be a real nice player...He just needs more mins to develop. This clears more cap for Detroit who will now go after Big Baby or David Lee.

    Your overestimation of Dahntay Jones is devastating - and probably based on a single playoff series (the one between the Nuggets and Hornets). For the vast majority of the season, Jones was easily the worst player in the active rotation for the Nuggets. Even much worse than Anthony Carter, and that's a very hard task to accomplish.

    I won't be convinced that Afflalo is an upgrade until he proves it. But at the very least, it's a lateral transaction, and one in which Denver gives up a 28-year-old D-leaguer for a 23-year-old 3rd year NBA player who at least has some upside remaining potentially.

    The Nuggets have lost nothing here except for about a million and a half dollars in salary obligations. Great trade.

    I am not sure if Afflalo will really fit in with Denver but from the way most of the people in this thread are talking it seems like it is a good fit for him
