Evan Fournier has seen lots in his 11-year profession. That is helped him take being moved to the bench in stride.
Fournier was initially changed within the New York Knicks beginning lineup by Quentin Grimes two video games in the past. With Grimes out on Saturday because of damage, Fournier stayed on the bench with Cam Reddish drawing the beginning.
“It’s what it’s. I’m in Yr 11. So, I do know loads of issues can occur,” Fournier mentioned after the preliminary benching. “We see it yearly. Final yr with Kemba (Walker). So, I’m going to do the very best with what I’ve, attempt to impression profitable and be a superb teammate. That’s all you may ask for. Simply do my greatest. Be a professional and take it from there…By doing all of your job.”
Fournier mentioned Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau would not must justify his choice to vary the beginning lineup.
“He doesn’t want to clarify himself. He decided,” Fournier mentioned of Thibodeau. “We’re a crew and have to maneuver ahead.”
