HoopsHype Evan Fournier rumors
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.
