Evan Fournier did not make the final cut for Team France's Olympic roster.
While Fournier will not be suiting up for his national team at the Olympic Games, he's going to be stepping into the largest role of his career next year with the Magic as one of Orlando's primary weapons on offense. Fournier put up solid mid-round value last year behind averages of 15.4 points, 1.2 steals and 2.0 triples per contest, and he'll likely up his output in the scoring column this upcoming season.

Evan Fournier will play for the French National Team this summer if they qualify for the 2016 Olympics.

It would be surprising to see France lose to New Zealand in their qualifying round, so we can assume Fournier will be playing for his National Team as the 2016 Olympic Games. Frank Vogel said that he intends to give Fournier a larger role on offense next season, so he'll make for a fine mid-round target on draft day.
Jul 7 - 2:50 PM

Evan Fournier received a five-year, $85 million contract extension to stay with the Magic.

The Magic went over the top to clear out cap space, so there was almost no chance they were going to miss out on Fournier. Former coach Scott Skiles trusted Fournier in a big way, helping the Frenchman average a career-high 15.4 points per game. Now that Victor Oladipo is gone, the 23-year-old wing should get plenty of shots headed his way. He'll get minutes in the mid 30s with coach Frank Vogel as a mid-round fantasy target in standard leagues.
Jul 1 - 3:25 PM

The Magic have officially extended a qualifying offer to Evan Fournier, making him a restricted free agent.

The Magic will now be able to match any offer Fournier receives on the open market, and all indications are that the Orlando franchise will do everything they can to retain him. With Victor Oladipo no longer a part of the equation, Fournier will have a clear path to minutes as the team's unquestioned starting two-guard, and he'll likely take on a more proactive role on offense. As a starter last season, Fournier compiled averages of 15.6 points, 2.7 assists, 2.0 triples and 1.3 steals on 45.9 percent shooting.

The Orlando Magic plan to match any offers restricted free agent Evan Fournier receives this summer, according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders.

Magic GM Ryan Hennigan has said re-signing Fournier will be one of Orlando's top priorities this summer and the draft night trade of Victor Oladipo spoke volumes to that commitment. Fournier averaged 15.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.0 treys last season and should be able to improve upon his fantasy value in 2016-17 with Oladipo now in Oklahoma City.

Orlando GM Rob Hennigan said that re-signing Evan Fournier is one of their top priorities this summer.

"One of our biggest, if not our biggest, priorit[ies] is to make sure Evan stays with us," Hennigan said, "and we're confident we'll be able to do that." The Magic have the ability to match any offer from opposing teams, and they will have more than enough cap space to re-sign Fournier and pursue other free agents as well. Fournier had a breakout season with the Magic with averages of 15.4 points, 2.8 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.0 3-pointers on 46.2 percent shooting from the field, returning top-70 value in standard leagues.
Apr 18 - 11:18 AM

Evan Fournier scored 28 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 46 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

The Magic used him at power forward at times in this game with the Heat going small. That probably won't happen as much going forward, especially with Victor Oladipo (concussion) possibly out for the year. Fournier should have a terrific finish to his season.
Apr 8 - 10:45 PM

Evan Fournier scored 25 points during a 114-94 win over the Pacers on Thursday, adding one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers.

He made 10-of-14 from the field to get to at least 25 points for just the second time since the break. The Magic have won their last three games since they were eliminated from the postseason, so someone should tell them about this thing called tanking. Their win streak moved them to No. 11 in the lottery.
Mar 31 - 10:12 PM

Evan Fournier scored 12 points with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 26 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

He had a big bandage on his forehead from a cut from Friday. Fournier could be looking at more time as the primary wing because Victor Oladipo (wrist) didn't warm up and he was in a brace. Fournier should be owned in all leagues.
Mar 26 - 10:24 PM

Evan Fournier received six stitches following a cut from Friday.

He should be fine and there's no concern of a concussion here. Fournier didn't play great on Friday with 20 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Heat. He should be owned in standard leagues, especially with Victor Oladipo (wrist) up in the air.
Mar 26 - 2:29 AM

Evan Fournier was quiet in 28 minutes on Wednesday, finishing a 107-99 road loss with nine points on 4-of-11 shooting, three boards and one assist.

He added one steal but was 0-of-5 from downtown, and this marks his lowest-scoring game since Feb. 26. Fournier sat out the final 15 minutes tonight, while a reserve-heavy lineup cut into Charlotte's big lead, but he should resume playing 32+ minutes vs. Cleveland on Friday.
Mar 16 - 10:23 PM

Evan Fournier torched the Nuggets for 30 points, three rebounds, three assists, a steal and five 3-pointers on 11-of-19 shooting in Tuesday's win.

Fournier tied a career high in points tonight and has bounced back in a big way over the last few weeks. As long as he's starting for the Magic, he should be starting for your fantasy team.
Mar 15 - 10:01 PM

Evan Fournier scored 15 points (6-of-12 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with four boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in Saturday's blowout loss to the Blazers.

He only played 26 minutes due to the lopsided score, but he was still able to post a decent line. Fournier has been steady over his last five games with averages of 17.2 points, 3.6 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.6 3-pointers, and his value is going to be safe down the stretch even when the Magic drop out of the playoff hunt since he's playing for a new deal.
Mar 13 - 1:14 AM

Evan Fournier scored 16 points on 6-of-15 shooting Friday, to go with seven boards, six assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one turnover through 38 minutes of action.

Fournier has been on quite the tear since the All-Star break, producing averages of 16.9 points, 3.4 assists, 2.1 triples, 1.3 steals and just 1.1 turnovers per game on 49.1 percent shooting from the field, which has been good enough for top-50 value in standard 9-cat leagues. He's playing for a payday, so Fournier has every reason to keep performing at his mid-round pace.
Mar 12 - 12:55 AM

Evan Fournier scored 23 points on 8-of-11 shooting in a 107-98 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday, adding four boards, three assists and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

The Magic have now lost three straight games, but this was Fournier's second solid game in a row after he scored 20 points with three assists and two treys vs. the Warriors on Monday. The Magic aren't ready to unleash Mario Hezonja yet and Fournier doesn't have a lot of competition for minutes on the wings, so he could be a mid-round player the rest of the way.
