Fournier is still one of the best pure scorers in this year’s free agency class coming off a season where he averaged 17.1 points per game in his time split between Orlando and Boston. The Celtics simply can’t afford to lose him in free agency with no return since they do not have the salary cap space to adequately replace him. There are a few other options (sign-and-trade) to leverage his value if the Celtics aren’t able to retain him. How much the team decides Fournier is worth in his next contract is the far tougher choice, along with what players on the roster would need to be moved if he’s retained in order to stay within the team’s budget. He’s expected to command at least $14 million per season in this market, per league sources.
