NBA Free Agency 2011: Aaron Afflalo To Cleveland?

Grantland.com's Bill Simmons continued his solid breakdown of the upcoming NBA free agency period with an article yesterday breaking down the possible destinations of the top available shooting guards. One of the top two-guards on the market is Arron Afflalo, whose defensive prowess and scoring ability make him a very desirable player on the current market. Simmons feels that the Cleveland Cavaliers could be a possible suitor, especially if they use their amnesty clause on Baron Davis to free up even more salary cap space:

As soon as Cleveland dumps Baron, it can offer Afflalo a four-year deal for a little more than $38 million. I would do this yesterday. Unfortunately for the Cavs, he can do better … which means they're headed for Nick Young (maybe four years, $32 million)?

Ultimately, Simmons feels Afflalo could be a target of divisional rival Indiana, who has the cap space and the need for him.
