Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan on Wednesday refuted reports that his team is on the verge of a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers that would involve Orlando’s Arron Afflalo and L.A.’s Eric Bledsoe as the deal’s centerpieces. “We haven’t had a drop or an ounce of communication with the Clippers for almost three weeks,” Hennigan said. “So, if we’re about to make a trade with them, I guess I missed that memo.” The website Sports City, without citing any sources, recently reported that Bledsoe and wing Caron Butler “are expected to be packaged in a draft-day trade” to the Magic for Afflalo. Meanwhile, ESPN reported Tuesday night that talks between the Magic and Clippers were ongoing and a deal could be reached by Thursday’s NBA Draft. Hennigan said he would be “stunned” if a deal occurred with the Clippers in the near future.
