The 6-foot-7 shooting guard has been averaging a career-high 18.8 points per game for the Magic this season. That’s one of the many reasons, if the Warriors were able to propose an offer, they’d likely have to use that trade exception.
Fournier can score. However, he’d have to decline his $17 million player option.
He has solid range and has continued to improve his shooting throughout his career. Averaging a career-high 2.7 threes per game on an outstanding 47% from the field, Fournier has all the tools to be a key contributor for the Warriors.
After all, for the last few seasons, the team has had one of the worst-performing second units in the NBA, one reason they’ve struggled when their starters are sidelined. He would provide a solid safety net and another terrific small-ball option.
If the Warriors want to spend the money for a solid scorer and above-average role players, Fournier is their man. He’s one of the best, most affordable free agents hitting the market this offseason.
