The Boston Celtics acquire Evan Fournier from the Orlando Magic for two second-round picks.

Performance of Evan Fournier

One reason why the Boston Celtics acquire Evan Fournier is for his strong scoring and shooting, according to ESPN’s Sham Charania. Fournier averaged a career-high in points and assists with 19.7 points and 3.7 assists. This season, he is shooting at 46.1% FG, which is approximately 6.5 field goals made in 14.2 field goal attempts. He also makes an average of 2.8 3’s per game on 7.2 3 point attempts. Furthermore, he averaged 2.9 rebounds and 1 steal in 30.3 minutes played in 26 games. Fournier will be a nice addition for the Boston Celtics, playing alongside stars such as Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Kemba Walker.
