Evan Fournier Admits Looking Ahead Towards Free Agency 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Dec 30, 2015 4:14 am

Evan Fournier admitted he occasionally looks ahead towards his restricted free agency.

"Of course. It is in the back of your mind," Fournier said. "You are trying to play your best basketball. When I started playing basketball, it's about winning championships and being a great player. That's what really motivates me, being great. I don't want to be a mediocre player or average.

"I know if I have a very good season, the money is gonna follow."

While Fournier will be a restricted free agent, the Orlando Magic must also consider the fact Victor Oladipo is eligible for an extension next summer. There may not be enough money to go around for the franchise.

"That's a very good question," Fournier said. "But that's not really my decision. I don't really look at the next summer and everything. We have something pretty good going on right now. I feel like we can do something. [His future] is for at the end of the season."

Fournier would like to remain with the Magic.

"I'm very happy to be here. I'd love to stay," he said.

Total non-story, being spun by the reporter.

Doesn't make much sense for him to stick around, either. Not with Hezonja, Oladipo and Tobias all there competing for minutes.
