07:14 AM ET 06.26 | The Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Clippers have the makings of a big deal on their hands. [The two teams] have been discussing the possibility of completing a trade headlined by Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo and prized L.A. point guard Eric Bledsoe in conjunction with Thursday's NBA draft, according to sources close to the process. Sources told ESPN.com on Tuesday that a trade with those two players as the principals could happen as soon as this week and potentially could be expanded to include Magic forward Andrew Nicholson and a future first-round pick as compensation for the highly coveted Bledsoe. But the long-awaited arrival of Doc Rivers as the Clippers' new coach and senior vice president of basketball operations could push any Bledsoe trade into July.

Great trade for the Clipps but the Magic only gets Bledsoe. Magic loses a promising Nicholson and Afflalo would be good for the Clipps...

Orlando is in definite full blown rebuild mode - Guess they see Bledsoe as a replacement for Jammer Nelson down the road.

Orlando can get a PG from the draft.

I guess Orlando is hoping a little bit of CP3 rubbed off onto Bledsoe is the only other answer...

The way I see this is, neither Afflalo nor Bledsoe are franchise guys. So that way, it is a fair trade. Throwing in Nicholson is stupid but that's nothing new for ORL.
