Rudy Gobert: “Evan Fournier is the Knicks’ best shooter”

As he tries to convince Tom Thibodeau to reinstate him in his rotation, Evan Fournier received the support of one of his teammates in the French team: Rudy Gobert. The tricolor pivot, interviewed by the New York Postthus expresses his incomprehension regarding the situation of his compatriot.

Because according to him, Evan Fournier is “ the best shooter on the team, the best shooter on the Knicks. In terms of pure 3-point shooting, I think it’s the best. » His recent pre-season outings tend to demonstrate this, even if the Frenchman is coming off his worst career in this field.

Quickly excluded from his coach’s plans, Evan Fournier finished last season with poor shooting percentages (34% on shots including 31%) in around twenty appearances.

The previous season, however, he was one of the most skillful players on the team with 39% from far, even breaking the record for 3-pointers scored by a Knicks player in a season. However, Tom Thibodeau’s problem with the French back is on the defensive side, not really on his ability to score from distance.

“If they don’t value him, I know a lot of other teams would bet on him”

I think he can contribute and help a lot of teams. I think everyone knows that. But it’s a bit strange to find yourself on the bench without knowing why. Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in a situation. I know he will have the opportunity to play again and everyone will understand that he can help and win. And do it at a high level and every night », However, continues the Wolves pivot.

The latter finds “ unfortunate that it seems like a lack of respect, when things happen that way and the communication is not what it should be with his coach. But I think it’s better now, I hope so. He looked good (SATURDAY), I know it’s going to be okay. And if it’s not (At New York), it will be elsewhere. If they don’t value him, I know a lot of other teams would bet on him. »

Especially since the Frenchman is reaching the end of his contract. This season, the guard will make just under $19 million. The Knicks would have the possibility of activating an option of the same amount for the following season.
