Evan Fournier is a three-point specialist that could make a big difference for the New York Knicks.
One of the New York Knicks’ biggest weaknesses this season is the one thing that NBA teams have to be good at if they want to have an chance at competing at a high level and that’s three-point shooting.
The Knicks have only made a total of 352 three pointers so far this season, which ranks them dead last in the NBA. In comparison, the Houston Rockets, who lead the league, have connected on a total of 661 three-point shots.
If the Knicks are going to have any chance at making a playoff push, they’ll need to add a three-point specialist and the Orlando Magic have someone that can help them by the name of Evan Fournier.
Rival executives expect Jeff Weltman, Orlando’s new team president, to aggressively hunt for new homes for the likes of Evan Fournier, Elfrid Payton and Mario Hezonja, given that Nikola Vucevic’s broken finger is likely to preclude dealing the center.
Fournier stands at 6-foot-7 and is versatile enough to play the two or three spot. He could take over for Tim Hardaway Jr. at small forward in order to allow him to start at shooting guard.
Fournier has been averaging 18 points per game this season and has connected on 39 percent of his shots from three-point land.
