    I really like the fit of Fournier with MDA.

    But Magic seem likely to match almost anything.

    We need Horford, plus a bunch of assassins that play defense. This dude shoots .400 from three and 1.2 steals per game. Lock him up!

    Magic are building a nice team. He would be good for bench shooting though

    Yes, but remember, according to certain Idiots on this board who drove Doc away, he is not an insider!!

    I would love Fournier on this team. I think he's looking for a max deal, which would probably too much since he would probably be coming off the bench behind Harden, and I think Orlando will match any offer he gets.

    Heck no. This dude is a legit 3. 23 years old and shot 50/40/84 last season. Very quick guy, JJ Redick type of play runner. Wouldn't mind doing those curls and he handles decently too.

    Fournier did not want to play with Harden. Nobody wants to play with Harden.

    he is also a SG and harden has that position so he would be coming off the bench

    Yeah that's definitely it. Has nothing to do with the money he just got offered.
