He's a product of INSEP, a basketball academy in France that produced NBA'ers such as Tony Parker, Ronny Turiaf, and Boris Diaw.
Fournier became the youngest player to score more than 20 points in French League history. He did it at a younger age than NBA Players Tony Parker (San Antonio Spurs), Roddy Beaubois (Dallas Mavericks), Mickael Pietrus (Phoenix Suns), Nicolas Batum (Portland Trailblazers), and Boris Diaw (Charlotte Bobcats).
Reminds me of: Worst Case -- Garrett Temple. Best Case -- Kevin Martin
