Having said that, I've only seen him in a couple of games so I know him mostly by reputation (through other people's writings/podcasts), do you guys think he has any upside to develop further into something really good or would he be kind of a steward/placeholder while we keep looking for a true playmaker?
Also, I'm getting to the point that I might be okay keeping Evan around if the right deal isn't there, whereas before I wanted him pretty much gone no matter what. It's probably the lack of recent exposure.
Monte Morris was a player I mentioned for the Magic to look into at the trade deadline from February. I tried to work in a scenario that best works out for both Magic and Nuggets. I wasn't able to come up with one that made sense. Tyus Jones is the other PG I'm still considering the Magic should get after once free agency hits. I do not expect the Magic to find a solid playmaker in the draft due to a lack of quality PGs at our draft position.
As for any Fournier deals, Fournier is okay for what he does regardless of how the season went for him. However, I do agree that his value isn't as high for the Magic to score any Bradley Beal deals anytime soon. If Fournier brought more intangibles to the team, some of the fans would be pro-Fournier. Plus his value would be up more and better deals could be on the table.
If Fournier was to be traded this summer, I have a feeling that it would be in a deal that no one would see coming.
