Evan Fournier will not play for France during Olympic qualifying this summer due to his pending free agency.
The qualifying tournament takes place in the Philippines from July 5-10 while NBA free agency opens on July 6th. Fournier, a restricted free agent, should command a hefty contract due to the NBA cap rising and putting up career numbers this season (32.5mpg, 15.4ppg, 40%3p and 1.2spg). Fournier could still join France’s roster if they qualify for the Olympics.
