The Knicks will roll with Alec Burks at point guard but we expect Fournier to operate as the de facto playmaker.
We know Thibodeau prefers to have both Derrick Rose and Immanuel Quickley operating off the bench to provide an offensive spark, leaving Fournier as the best playmaker in the first unit.
Burks is more efficient playing off the ball and Fournier has shown glimpses of great basketball IQ during his days with the Magic and in the pass-friendly French national team.
Fournier has the size to be an average defender at least, and his combination of playmaking and versatile scoring could be what the Knicks need to get over the hump.
The Knicks craved another passer and a player who could create his own shot last year, and Fournier happens to clear both boxes for them.
