HoopsHype Evan Fournier rumors
An NBA scout told me that Evan Fournier (who played today twice) is a good prospect, nice shooting touch and movements, but has still a lot to learn and has to strenghten his body. Sulia
Evan Fournier, who is the only international player projected to go in the first round of this year’s draft, did not participate in drills or any of the scrimmage games. Instead, he held a private workout in the afternoon, and looked great shooting the ball, finishing his session by draining five straight three-pointers from a good five feet beyond the NBA arc. When he was finished, Rockets director of scouting and camp director Arturas Karnisovas said with a smile, “OK, everyone. Show’s over.” NBCSports.com
NBADraft.net: French SG Evan Fournier is headlining the camp and not going to the Chicago Draft combine. How were you able to persuade him to come to Treviso and not Chicago? Arturas Karnisovas: Again, this camp is a perfect set up for Euro players to bring out the very best they have to offer. Players believe and their representative believe that. NBADraft.net
Evan Fournier, the 19-year-old French combo guard who has caught the eye of the Nets' European scouts, will not be at the pre-draft group workout in East Rutherford this weekend. Fournier, 6-7, suffered a right ankle injury (likely a sprain) Wednesday night in his final French League game and left the arena on crutches. That whole scenario would have made him a perfect fit for the Nets, who lost 250 manpower games to injury, illness and personal reasons this season. New York Post
Fournier has already declared his intentions to enter the draft and is likely to stay in barring unforeseen circumstances. He missed out on some of the exposure a strong showing at the Nike Hoop Summit would have provided him, but will likely participate in the adidas EuroCamp this June in one form or another, something that could give his draft stock another boost.
