DENVER • A person with knowledge of the situation says the Denver Nuggets have acquired guard Arron Afflalo from the Orlando Magic for point guard Evan Fournier and the No. 56 pick in the draft.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the deal has yet to be announced.

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.

Fournier is an up-and-coming guard whose minutes increased late in the season after Andre Miller was traded and Nate Robinson went out with a knee injury. Fournier averaged 8.4 points and 1.5 assists in 2013-14.

The 21-year-old Fournier was taken 20th overall in 2011.

The deal was first reported by Yahoo! Sports.
