- Orlando Magic receive Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless, Josh McRoberts and one future first-round pick from each team
The Nuggets give up two players -- Afflalo and Harrington -- as well as a first-round draft pick as a part of the trade, but a number of analysts see Iguodala as well worth the expense.
