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.
Fournier started his career with the Denver Nuggets and played with them for 2 seasons. After the trade, he played the last 7 seasons with the Orlando Magic.
