It is exactly 17 million dollars (15.3M €) per season, which makes him the highest paid player in the Magic locker room, tied with the Congolese Bismack Biyombo, but with one more year of contract ( until 2021 for Evan Fournier). The 24-year-old full-back is also the fourth in the hierarchy of French players, after Rudy Gobert ($ 25.5M / year) at the Utah Jazz, Nicolas Batum ($ 24M / year) at the Charlotte Hornets and JoaKim Noah ($ 18M / year) at the New York Knicks.
