Boston Celtics

May 12, 2021; Cleveland, Ohio, USA; Boston Celtics guard Evan Fournier (94) drives between Cleveland Cavaliers forward Isaac Okoro (35) and forward Dean Wade (32) in the first quarter at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

As reported by Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe on Twitter, the Celtics have agreed to a sign-and-trade with guard Evan Fournier that will send him to the New York Knicks. Per Himmelsbach, the deal created a $17.1 million Traded Player Exception (TPE) for President of Basketball Ops Brad Stevens.

The Celtics sent Fournier to the Knicks along with a 2023 second-round draft pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick, the latter being a top-55 protected pick from the Charlotte Hornets, the team said in a press release.

Acquired before the 2021 trade deadline, Fournier played 16 games for the Celtics and averaged 13 points and 2.8 three-pointers while playing 29.5 minutes per game.

The news comes less than 24 hours after the Celtics agreed to a four-year max extension for guard Marcus Smart.
