Denver, CO – With the 20th pick in the first round, the Denver Nuggets surprised most experts and went overseas, selecting Evan Fournier from France. Fournier is 6’7″, 204 lbs, and won’t be 20 years old until October. Last year, he averaged 14.0 points per game, shot 42% from the field, and 75% from the free throw line. Fournier has the size and ball handling ability to potentially be an effective wingman in the future. Being that he is so young, don’t expect him to get much playing time this coming season. A year or two of developing his game will be essential to Fournier getting minutes on the court down the road.
