5 Free agents the Philadelphia 76ers should avoid at all costs this offseason

3. Evan Fournier — SG/SF

Seldom-used veterans are almost always the antecedents of bargain bin deals, and that could very well be the case with Evan Fournier, who finally had his wish of getting out of New York granted before the trade deadline thanks to another sterling destination, Detroit.

Fournier will be a free agent this summer, and his limited showings these past two seasons in similarly limited court time will macerate his price tag. But even as a minimum signing, the 76ers should look away at the first instance that his camp gazes.

Secondary three-level scoring has been the Frenchman’s bread and butter in his career, but his shot has significantly dropped off in the last two to three years — the main impetus behind his ghoulish Thibodeauan benching. He’s a complete non-factor defensively thanks to him being flat-footed on that end, and his relative lack of playmaking pales his value when the 76ers could just try and speak Nicolas Batum out of retirement with a good deal.
