Exec receives an outright turnover of $78 million from Knicks Sharpshooter


Evan Fournier is still Nick today.

The New York Knicks have many interesting things to watch as the season kicks off off winnings and losses.

While the Knicks dropped their season opener against the Memphis Grizzlies, they remained competitive the entire time and nearly beat out one of RJ Barrett’s worst matches as a professional.

On the bright side, Julius Randle fired efficiently and finished with Best team plus/minus +7. If he can maintain this level of production going forward, Knicks should be fine.

Another person to watch is Yvan Fournier. Moving him will free up more minutes for some of the young players on the roster like Quentin Grimes and Cam Reddish, but it may not be as easy as it sounds.

Fournier is the Knicks’ record holder for three throws during the season, but that award came in a season in which New York failed to make the playoffs. At this point, the league knows who Fournier is, and that’s basically what an NBA executive told Shaun Devine of Heavy.com about his commercial value.

What is the value of Evan Fournier’s trade?

Trading Fournier for his trade doesn’t make much sense, but if the Knicks are struggling, this might be something they’re considering.

It’s in the second year of the decade that he will do that Pay him $73 million, so he has a lot of money tied up in his bargain. Moving it will save you that money and also minutes for some of the younger players. The CEO says that’s the best you can hope for at this point.

“You know what Evan is at this point,” the CEO said. “If you were a competitor and needed a veteran to score a seat on the bench, it would be someone to look at. I don’t think there is any question they would be willing to pass on. But you’re probably just doing it for a pay cut, and you won’t get anything important to him.”

There are plenty of teams that could use shooting across the league, and the Los Angeles Lakers are a stark example that comes to mind, but there’s no telling whether they will be able to devise a package to lure the Knicks, especially if it means Russell Westbrook is included.

While Fournier’s salary is high, it’s not a non-cancellable contract, so there must be something available to him if Knicks plans to buy it.

While Fournier is known as a shooter all over the league, it is also very complex. He hit three out of his six in the loss to the Grizzlies, but ended up hitting only four out of his 11 total shots.

His defense also leaves a lot to be desired, but the team doesn’t add him to the list for that. He might be best suited to him as a high-goal goalkeeper/attacker off the bench, but his contract makes that difficult.

There is grumbling that Quentin Grimes may come to start the Fournier quest at some point in the season, so it will be a fight to watch.
