On the first day of free agency, the Celtics gave the Knicks: a strong shooter in the paint. For some teams, like the Knicks, free agency feels like Christmas.

Boston’s guard Evan Fournier has agreed to a four-year contract with the Knicks, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Fournier will become part of the New York team’s large payroll used to make multiple deals as free agency opened. The Knicks have reportedly spent about $35 million in re-signing Derrick Rose, Alec Burks, and Nerlens Noel.

With another potential $78 million to Fournier, some New Yorkers are wondering whether their team made the right decision. However, the current French Olympian’s average of 13 points in just 16 regular-season games after missing part of the season due to COVID-19 and injury should convince them.

While Fournier was only with Boston for a season, he played a key role in their offense and leaves a hole to be filled.
