Afflalo, 29, gives the Blazers the perimeter shooting depth that they've been pursuing for the stretch run and a player they could potentially re-sign this summer based upon several variables in free agency. Nevertheless, Afflalo could turn into a rental for the rest of the regular season.

Afflalo has averaged 14.5 points on 42.8 percent shooting for the Nuggets this season.
