The Boston Celtics kicked off their 2021 trade deadline by reportedly acquiring Evan Fournier from the Orlando Magic in exchange for two second-round picks.

The deal was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Through 26 games this season, Fournier is averaging 19.7 points on 46.1% shooting (38.8% 3PT).

The 28-year-old Frenchman is on an expiring contract, but for the time being, Fournier addresses some of Boston’s serious needs.

The Celtics depth chart is as shallow as they come, and Fournier will provide short-term help right away at a good deadline price tag.

Boston sends out two second-round picks, using its $28.5 million trade exception (acquired in the Gordon Hayward deal) to absorb Fournier’s $17 million annual salary, according to The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach.

Heading toward unrestricted free agency this offseason, a greater question looms with Boston’s ability to re-sign Fournier.

Is Danny Ainge really just looking for short-term help in the form of a rental? Or does the Celtics front office have confidence in its ability to bring back Fournier after this season? Boston will own his Bird Rights this offseason once the trade is finalized, meaning it can offer Fournier any contract despite being an over-the-cap team.

Fournier will provide a much-needed offensive boost to Boston’s roster, bringing reliable 3-point shooting and versatility to a depth chart that lacks in both categories.

Fournier can step in as a primary ball-handler as well, filling a backup point guard role for the Celtics as he has done for various stretches in Orlando.

He is a more consistent shooter than Marcus Smart, but Smart has the edge when it comes to playmaking.

Boston desperately needs scoring help off the bench, and Fournier will make an impact on that end right away.

He can finish inside as well — Fournier’s game doesn’t solely rely on 3-point shooting, which is a major positive for the Celtics.

The Celtics have struggled to finish close games this season, and the addition of Fournier could very well help that closing lineup.

Another area of assistance? Getting to the free throw line.

Fournier is averaging a career-high 4.7 free throw attempts per game, which is now the highest clip on the Celtics roster.

More than anything, he should help free up some space for Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, which is a must for Boston.

Making life easier for its two stars is a top priority, and Fournier certainly will do that on the offensive end.

He won’t kill you defensively, but that side of the floor isn’t necessarily a strength of Fournier’s.

It’s clear Boston had offensive reinforcements in mind with this deal.

All-in-all, Fournier is a very solid offensive upgrade for the Celtics, something they needed entering Thursday’s deadline.

Two second-round picks for a reliable shooter and playmaker is a no-brainer for Boston’s front office.

With that in mind, however, the Celtics will be forced to clear a roster spot for their new wing.

Time will tell what they do to make that happen.

The trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m.

The Boston Celtics reportedly are acquiring Magic wing Evan Fournier in a pre-deadline trade


Report: Celtics to land Evan Fournier in trade with Magic originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Danny Ainge has made a move.

The Boston Celtics have acquired Evan Fournier in a trade with the Orlando Magic, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Thursday.

The Celtics will send Orlando two second-round draft picks in exchange for Fournier, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who was the first to report the deal.

Yahoo Sports’ Keith Smith reported Boston was still in trade discussions with the Magic involving Aaron Gordon, but the Denver Nuggets reportedly beat out the C’s to trade for the veteran forward.

Fournier is a solid pickup for the Celtics.

The 28-year-old wing is averaging a career-high 19.7 points per game on 46.1% shooting (38.8% from 3-point range) and gives the C’s a scoring boost outside Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Fournier is making $17 million this season on the final year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer unless he agrees to an extension before the offseason.
