Grievances about Ainge’s timing aside, Fournier is still technically on the Celtics, as they own his bird rights.
Reason #1 why the Boston Celtics should resign Evan Fournier: He can shoot
Before the trade deadline last season, Danny Ainge had been quoted many times saying he wanted “Shooting with size” as the Celtics struggled to piece together wins.
In just 16 games with the Boston Celtics, Evan Fournier cashed 44 of his 95 3-point attempts.
The Boston Celtics did not have a competent shooter that could influence movement like Fournier last year, and it led to one of the ugliest offenses of Stevens’ tenure with the Celtics.
