The Detroit Pistons, in the midst of their rebuilding phase, have signaled their intention to retain veteran shooting guard Evan Fournier following his acquisition from the New York Knicks.

According to insights from Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, despite initial speculation surrounding Fournier’s future with the Pistons, the organization has expressed a commitment to keeping the Frenchman on their roster moving forward.

Fournier, who saw limited action with the Knicks this season, has quickly made an impact since joining the Pistons. In just two games with his new team, the 31-year-old is averaging 11.5 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assists in 25 minutes per game.

With one more year remaining on his contract—a team option worth $19 million—Fournier provides the Pistons with flexibility and stability as they navigate their roster composition for the future.
