Evan Fournier will worry about trade deadline after his nap

The Orlando Magic will probably engage in trade discussions involving Evan Fournier before Thursday’s deadline, but please don’t disturb the shooting guard until he’s taken a mid-day snooze.

According to Josh Robbins of theĀ Orlando Sentinel, Fournier said the possibility of being traded will not affect his game-day nap.

“We have a game tonight, so it’s a regular day. The trade deadline is during the nap. So I’m going to take my nap, and when I wake up, I wake up. We’ll see what happens.”

Fournier is averaging a career-best 17.8 points while shooting 38.7 percent from three-point range, so teams in need of offensive firepower should pursue him. Granted, the 25-year-old is worth $17 million per season through 2020-21, so he won’t be cheap.

If Orlando trades Fournier, he won’t be playing Thursday anyway. Should the Magic not find a suitable trade, though, they run the risk of disrupting his game-day routine, and that’s just inconsiderate.

Let the man sleep. His nap supersedes news at the trade deadline.
