Evan Fournier, France opens World Cup play Saturday

Well, we are finally here. The FIBA World Cup gives us competitive, high-level basketball starting Saturday in Spain. Team USA is in the relatively tame Group C. Even without Kevin Durant and Paul George, the U.S. is expected to win the World Cup. The roster is heavily reliant on its fast break and 3-point shooting to generate offense.

Young Frechman Evan Fournier a promising pickup for Magic

Repetez, s'il vous plait. Ee-vahn Forn-yay. By any name, he is cool. A smiling 6-foot-7 charmer with backcourt promise by way of the Denver Nuggets.
