4 ARRON AFFLALO
POSITION: Shooting guard
VITALS: 6-5, 215, UCLA, six years pro
2012-13 STATS: 16.5 ppg., 3.7 rpg., 3.2 apg.
ROLE WITH TEAM: Afflalo will be looked to to be a scoring presence on the wing and a veteran leader in the locker room. He also could be the team’s closer late in games and late in the shot clock, but he must become more efficient this season.
PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: The Magic want to see Afflalo become a more efficient player this season. Among the players who spent most of the season with the Magic, Afflalo led the team in scoring. But his shooting percentages dipped to 43.9 percent from the floor and 30 percent from 3-point range. Also, he averaged 2.16 turnovers a game and that number must improve.
STATUS: He is expected to be a starter at shooting guard this season.
