Report: Celtics to land Evan Fournier in trade with Magic originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Danny Ainge has made a move.
The Boston Celtics have acquired Evan Fournier in a trade with the Orlando Magic, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Thursday.
The Celtics will send Orlando two second-round draft picks in exchange for Fournier, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, who was the first to report the deal.
Fournier is a solid pickup for the Celtics. The 28-year-old wing is averaging a career-high 19.7 points per game on 46.1% shooting (38.8% from 3-point range) and gives the C's a scoring boost outside Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.
Fournier is making $17 million this season on the final year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer unless he agrees to an extension before the offseason.
