Evan Fournier isn't leaving Orlando. According to ESPN's Marc Spears, Fournier has agreed to a five-year, $85 million contract extension with the Orlando Magic.
Last year was Fournier's second season with the Magic and he ended up having a career year by averaging 15.4 points while shooting 46.2 percent and 40 percent from three. The Magic had made it a priority to re-sign him this offseason and extended a qualifying offer right before the start of free agency so if he agreed to sign elsewhere, Orlando could match. But perhaps none of that insurance was needed as Fournier clearly wanted to return to Orlando.
Five years at $85 million may be a bit of a stretch for Fournier but he is young and could possibly blossom under the guidance of new coach Frank Vogel. It is starting-level money and with the Magic having traded Victor Oladipo, Fournier should now be entrenched in Orlando's starting lineup.
