Knicks, trade proposal for Evan Fournier

The New York Knicks have been shopping around Evan Fournier since the offseason. Will they finally be able to find him a new home by the February 8 trade deadline? Bobby Marks, ESPN’s NBA front office insider, suggested a trade for Fournier that would give the Knicks a backup big man to help Isaiah Hartenstein and Julius Randle while Mitchell Robinson is still out.

Mark’s trade proposal:

The New York Knicks receive: Kelly Olynyk

Utah Jazz receive: Evan Fournier, 2 second round picks

“I just kept it simple,” Marks said in his Knicks Trade Guide video. “I don’t know if Utah would do that. [This] gives [the Knicks] a great stretch, a guy who can shoot, protection behind Randle. Who knows when Mitchell Robinson will be back.” The Jazz were struggling with a 12-18 record when NBA insider Marc Stein reported last Christmas that Olynyk might be available.
