13. Evan Fournier

Fournier has struggled to get minutes since 2022. He appeared in just three games before being traded to the Pistons at the deadline in the Bogdan Bogdanovic deal. The 31-year-old was a key rotation piece for the Nuggets, Magic, Celtics, and Knicks before falling into head coach Tom Thibodeau’s doghouse.

Fournier has still shined on the French National Team and knows Victor Wembanyama well. The 6’6 wing could come to San Antonio and help the Spurs. He could be a key voice in the locker room and play a role on the court. Fournier still has plenty left in the tank, but he must find the right situation.

The 31-year-old is a career 37.8 percent 3-point shooter who plays stout defense and can score. Fans should not expect too much, but he would help Wemby get to his spots and make the teenager even better.

Evan Fournier will be a free agent this summer and looking for a place where he can get minutes. Victor Wembanyama would welcome him to San Antonio, and the Spurs need veterans to help their young talent reach their ceilings. Fournier is no stranger to being a leader and could be a fantastic fit in the Alamo.
