The Celtics, who needed another scorer after Gordon Hayward’s departure this past offseason, will get a boost with Fournier.
The veteran guard is averaging a career-high 19.7 points per game this season.
The trade also doesn’t take Boston out of the sweepstakes for Orlando’s Aaron Gordon, according to a report.
Per a source: Acquiring Evan Fournier doesn't take Boston out of the mix to trade for Aaron Gordon. Celtics and Magic are still engaged in discussions for Gordon.
