Evan Fournier re-signed with the Orlando Magic on a five-year, $85 million deal fairly quickly without exploring offers from rival teams during his restricted free agency.
As mentioned on HoopsHype, Fournier was asked if it was important to continue building with the Magic over seeking the most money possible.
“Yes, definitely,” said Fournier. “I don’t want to say a pay cut. It’s still a lot of money. But I did not even look at offer sheets or consider anywhere else. Since day one I’ve said it: I feel good here. There is no reason for me to leave. The front office showed me confidence. I’m a loyal guy and this is how we do business.”
