First reported by ESPN.com, the Oklahoma City Thunder are close to reaching an agreement with veteran point guard Derek Fisher.
The 38-year old spent the last half of last season with the Thunder after being traded by the Lakers to Houston and then bought out by the Rockets. In 20 playoff games for OKC, he averaged 6.3 points and 1.3 assists.
After trading point guard Eric Maynor 30 minutes before the trade deadline on February 21st to the Portland Trail Blazers, the Thunder had only two point guards under contract and are looking to add a little security for the remainder of the year and postseason. The Thunder are currently very happy with second-year guard Reggie Jackson as their backup and likely view Fisher as a strong locker room presence and backup to the backup option.
Fisher signed earlier in the season with the Mavericks but appeared in only nine games before seeking release following a knee injury.
