Orlando’s Evan Fournier has emerged as one of the most "surprising" players in the NBA, with an average of 16.3 points per game and 2.2 three pointers per game.
In a recent report by ESPN, Zach Lowe outlined the benefits of Fournier playing the 2-guard position for Orlando. Fournier was acquired in a trade where Orlando gave up Arron Afflalo’s expiring deal; some worried Fournier wasn’t enough, but his production was proved otherwise.
According to the report, Fournier’s agent asked for big money with a contract extension: reportedly more than $10 million per year.
