(Arron) Afflalo, who turns 29 in October, played three seasons for the Nuggets after two rather uneven years with the Detroit Pistons. His scoring numbers have increased each of his seven seasons — from 3.7 as a rookie to 18.2 last season. He said he’s primed for a breakthrough season.

“I learn a lot every year, I try to improve my leadership skills, I try to improve my body and my game,” he said. “This year, I expect it to be no different. I expect to be one of the best players in the league and the best player at my position.”

Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
