The Oklahoma City Thunder will sign veteran point guard Derek Fisher.
ESPN reported Monday that Fisher will sign for the remainder of the season. The World Wide Leader also reported that Fisher was considered "a key locker room presence by Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks," where he played 20 games last season (averaging 4.9 points and 1.4 assists in 20.4 minutes), providing championship experience for the team's playoff run.
This is likely more of a locker-room move than one for fantasy owners to jump on. Reggie Jackson is the primary backup after the club traded Eric Maynor to Portland.
Fisher played nine games this season with the Dallas Mavericks (8.6 points and 3.6 assists in 25.4 minutes) before suffering a knee injury and asking for his release to be with his family.
