Evan Fournier has fallen completely out of the rotation in New York. Once an 18-points per game guy on good efficiency, what happened? Fournier isn't a great defender and that's not a good mix with a Tom Thibodeau-led team.

Erik Spoelstra is similar in the sense that defense is a priority. On the flip side, Spo has shown he can make it work with defensive liabilities in the past. Fournier would potentially bring firepower off the bench.

He’s a crafty scorer that plays at his own pace. Creating his own shot and getting shots out of pick and rolls aren't issues for him. Miami lacks a true shot-creator off the bench and Fournier could fill that void.

Did I mention that he is a Boston Celtics killer? That’s just the way we like them.
