Evan Fournier ‘trying to find his way’ on to this type of team

The NBA offseason affords an opportunity for many players to experience a change of scenery. Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier appears to be a player that is seeking one of his own.

According to The Athletic’s Zach Harper, Fournier is trying to find his way to a team like the Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix Suns, or Denver Nuggets. To be clear, he hasn’t outright requested a trade but sounds as though he would welcome one if it were to occur.

The rationale behind Fournier reportedly wanting a change of scenery appears quite justified. With Jonathan Isaac set to be sidelined for all of the upcoming NBA season, the Magic likely will not be in a position to compete at a high-level in a rising Eastern Conference.

There appears to be a theme in Fournier’s list of preferred destinations as they all are Western Conference contenders. The Clippers, Nuggets, and Suns will each be all-in during the upcoming season on the competition for an NBA championship.

The Magic appear to be best suited undergoing a rebuild by capitalizing on the trade value of veteran players like Nikola Vucevic and Fournier. That would create a salary cap clearing opportunity while giving more minutes and touches to young players like Mo Bamba.

During the 2019-20 season, Evan Fournier produced impressive averages of 31.5 minutes, 18.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 3.2 assists all while shooting 39.9% from beyond the arc. He remained a key contributor for an Orlando Magic team that earned a playoff appearance.
