A bit of an enigma, Evan Fournier an entriguing prospect for Magic

From the front office and coaching staff down to the players and fans, there remains a lot to be discovered about Fournier...

The Origin of Evan Fournier’s Nickname

I just realized that there hasn’t been an official Orlando Magic post on the ‘More Champagne’ nickname that has been bestowed upon Evan Fournier. Let’s change that. One look at the 21-year-old’s Twitter account, and you know immediately how much Evan covets his nickname. Fournier has been having a solid run for the French national team at the FIBA World Cup.

The defending Eurobasket champions lost to Brazil, somewhat surprisingly in the opener, before stealing a win from the free throw line against Croatia and then blowing out the overmatched Egypt by 30-plus points.
