Arron Afflalo on trade back to the Denver Nuggets: Nuggets are the best fit for me

DENVER - Guard Arron Afflalo says he is excited to be back with the Denver Nuggets.

"This is the best fit for me," Afflalo said at a news conference Monday.

The Nuggets acquired Afflalo from the Orlando Magic for point guard Evan Fournier and a draft pick.

Afflalo played for the Nuggets for three seasons before being dealt to Orlando on Aug. 10, 2012. He averaged 18 points for the Magic last season.

"As good as [Arron] was two years ago, he's only improved," Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly said.

"I expect to be at a high level on both ends of the court," Afflalo said. "I have no problem doing whatever coach asks."
