Derek Fisher Re-signing With Thunder

Derek Fisher back?! Derek Fisher hasn’t played since injuring his knee with the Mavs in December, but according to sources he’d back with the Thunder.

According to Dave McMenamin and Marc Stein | ESPN.com:

The Oklahoma City Thunder are preparing to re-sign veteran guard Derek Fisher, according to sources familiar with the Thunder’s thinking.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Thunder, after trading Eric Maynor away last week before the NBA’s annual trade deadline, have made plans to sign Fisher, who joined the Thunder for the stretch run in March 2012 after the Los Angeles Lakers dealt Fisher to Houston.

The veteran guard will sign with the team Monday for the remainder of the season, according to multiple league sources.

The Thunder declined comment late Sunday.

Fisher appeared in nine games this season with the Dallas Mavericks before asking for his release in December because the 38-year-old — after suffering a knee injury — wanted to return home to his family in Los Angeles.
