Fournier hasn’t fit in Boston because of their ball dominant players (Tatum / Brown), but that’s exactly why he would be looking to move on to a newer team. The talent is there for him to be a super sub.
We’re not giving up our entire cap space to help a division rival for Seth Curry, unless Philly attaches more assets, which they don’t seem to be willing to do.
Seth Curry is the scorer you want and is underpaid like Jordan Clarkson.
Fournier isn't a good defender, even though Curry isn't the greatest but I trust Curry's shot more.
I'm fine with just letting Watson play for the min. He can be like Tony Snell.
I'd rather give the $12 million to Kelly Olynyk than Evan Fournier. Kelly is a good passer and a comparable playmaker to Fournier considering their positions. Give Birch a Baynes like contract.
Does anyone doubt that if the Raptors had Birch and Gillespie instead of Baynes and Len from the start of the season, they wouldn't be at least be around 34-30 fighting with the Knicks, Hawks,Celtics and Heat for the #4 seed.
Still wouldn't be contenders and just lose in the 1st or 2nd round at best. Then they'd be drafting around #18 which is where I was looking pre-season.
I was looking at Kai Jones, Josh Christopher and Isaiah Todd.
