Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier earned a medal in 2014 FIBA World Cup play as France defeated Lithuania for third place. The United States toppled Serbia, 129-92, to earn gold.

Fournier shot 0-of-4 from the floor for four points in the bronze-medal game. In the tournament, the 21-year-old made 15 appearances, averaging 6.9 points per game on 38.5 percent shooting from the floor, including 24.1 percent from three-point distance.

Fournier cracked double-digit scoring in three games, including back-to-back 13-point efforts against Iran and Croatia. He combined for four triples in 10 attempts in those games.

The Magic acquired Fournier, a two-year NBA veteran, from the Denver Nuggets in exchange for Arron Afflalo the night of the 2014 NBA Draft. He owns career NBA averages of 7.4 points and 2.1 rebounds per game and figures to play a larger role in Orlando than he did in the Mile High City.
