Evan Fournier Rightfully Trashes Knicks And Thibs' In Latest Interview

Evan Fournier recently vented his frustration with the Knicks and he made it clear he wants the first flight out of JFK.

The 30-year-old was brutally honest on his stand-point with the Knicks organization in a recent interview, even saying that his career will take a disastrous turn if he stays with the team.


“I can manage a year without playing. Two… that would be terrible,” Fournier told L’Equipe.


“If you want to trade me with a good return, why don’t you use me?” The Frenchman was the fourth-best 3-point shooter in the league, but the Knicks did not take advantage of his downtown skills.


Last season Fournier only appeared in 27 games across the 2022/23 season, adding that his relationship with head coach Tom Thibodeau is non-existent. He was moved to a bench role after starting the Knicks’ first seven games last season until being out of the rotation entirely in mid-November.


Fournier expects to be traded this offseason, saying, “There’s no way they’re gonna keep me.”


In 107 games as a Knick, Fournier has averaged 12.1 PPG with a .405 FG%.
