Derek Fisher is in Oklahoma City to Finalize Deal to Join the Thunder

There was some speculation that Fisher might have some interest in the Heat or Spurs, but it was pretty clear that the best match for him was the Thunder.

It isn’t as if his addition will make or break OKC, but it will not hurt them in any way. It is no risk and high reward.

Fisher is a team guy, who is known to make clutch baskets, who doesn’t need a player like that? Plus his role will be more specific on the OKC than it was on Lakers. He can step right in and be a Steve Kerr type player for them.

Former Lakers point guard Derek Fisher is in Oklahoma City to finalize talks on a contract. Fisher was spotted at OKC’s Will Rogers World Airport early this morning with Thunder GM Sam Presti and other members of the Thunder front office. Fisher has reportedly been in final negotiations with the Thunder on a contract that would bring him to the Western Conference leaders after he clears waivers.


Fisher is signed, sealed and delivered to OKC.

Will play tonight against Clippers.
