Will Evan Fournier be the NY Knicks’ starting SG?

New York’s prized summer-time addition, Evan Fournier will likely start the season at the starting 2-guard spot.

The 6’7 sharpshooting Frenchman brings several elements to a Knicks roster that they were sorely lacking in last season.

The Knicks definitely lose a step on the defensive side of the ball when replacing Bullock with Fournier, but gain a player who’s an absolute DOG.

We’re all in for a treat being able to watch Fournier and Kevin Durant chirp at one another 4 times per season.

That friendly rivalry will be a lot of fun for many years to come.

Now, aside from just Fournier being a gamer, he provides the Knicks with just as good of a 3-point shooting presence, with him maybe taking the slight edge on moving threes.

He’s also a 3-level scorer with an ability to create his own offense if need be, something the Knicks weren’t getting out of Reggie.

It seemed like Reggie was only ever good as an outlet pass for a driving Julius Randle or RJ Barrett and if he didn’t have a good enough look, the ball died in his hands or he’d just make another pass to someone else on the perimeter.

Fournier is a much more aggressive player when it comes to attacking the rim.

Lastly, the Knicks have another secondary ball-handler and playmaker coming aboard who can get more open looks for others and make the rest of the team better.

Miss me with the whole “The Knicks should have signed a star, like DeMar DeRozan” nonsense because Evan Fournier fits on this team’s roster like a glove.
