Look who’s Playing Hoops in the Beaches of Palawan!

Orlando Magic took an early exit from the NBA this season after the Charlotte Hornets stung them out of the playoff last April 13.

So what’s next for the Magic’s French guard Evan Fournier? Well, a trip to the sunny beaches of the Philippines, Of course!


Fournier posted pictures of his adventure in Palawan in his Instagram account, with a picture of him playing ball with a makeshift hoop hanging on a tree.

Fournier is part of the French national team that the Philippines will face in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in July, but his participation in the FIBA OQT has not yet been confirmed.

Philippines will face France in the opener of the OQT in hopes of getting the golden ticket to the Rio Olympics.

Here’s more pictures of Fournier scouting the islands of the Philippines:
