Evan Fournier’s dream comes true with Knicks
The New York Knicks made some waves this offseason when they signed Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier.
After their round one exit in the playoffs courtesy of the Atlanta Hawks, it became very evident the Knicks needed to add players who could create offense for themselves and knock down shots. They got that with the additions of Walker and Fournier.
At their introductory press conference on Tuesday, Fournier revealed the truth about his new marriage with the Knicks.
Evan Fournier says he's always wanted to be a Knick 👏

So far throughout his career path, Fournier was drafted by the Denver Nuggets and played two seasons with them. He was traded to the Orlando Magic where he played 7 seasons and this past year, was traded to the Boston Celtics. Now having finally hit free agency, Fournier chose the Knicks, a team he always wanted to play for.
The Knicks didn’t go out and shoot for the fences by selling away a large part of the roster to acquire a disgruntled superstar like Damian Lillard. What they did do though was add a couple of bucket getters while bringing back many of their own from last year like Derrick Rose, Alec Burks, Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson.
New York will try to improve off of its 41-31 campaign from a year ago which saw them land the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference. The East won’t be easy but the expectations can expect to rise for the Knicks after their rebuild has been going ahead of schedule so far. Bring on the shot making and trash talking from Fournier!
