Derek Fisher, Thunder agree to 1-year contract
Derek Fisher will return to the Oklahoma City Thunder on a one-year, $1.4 million veteran's minimum salary, NewsOK.com's Darnell Marberry reports. Fisher will presumably act as a third-string point guard behind starter Russell Westbrook and backup Reggie Jackson, but the 39-year-old could also see time at the shooting guard position.
Fisher was signed in the middle of last season and played 33 regular-season games for coach Scott Brooks.
During the last two seasons, Fisher has played for Oklahoma City, but did not start the year with the Thunder either time. In 2011-12, he played 43 games with his longtime squad, the Los Angeles Lakers, before joining Kevin Durant and company for 20 games at the end of the lockout-reduced season. Last year, he signed with the Dallas Mavericks and only appeared in nine games before being released to again find himself in Oklahoma City.
