The Magic have extended a qualifying offer to Evan Fournier, making him a restricted free agent.
As a restricted free agent, the Magic will have the ability to match any offer sheet Fournier signs. After trading away Victor Oladipo it sounds as though the Magic have no intention of letting Fournier walk. He’s locked in as Orlando’s starting shooting guard, and has an excellent chance of improving on last year’s averages of 15.6 points, 2.7 assists, 2.0 triples and 1.3 steals.
