(6/9/2014) Looks like yet another guard will trade in the game jersey for the tailored suit, as Yahoo Sports reported Monday that the Knicks and Derek Fisher were finalizing a five-year contract.
After missing out on Steve Kerr, New York general manager Phil Jackson mentioned Fisher's candidacy in a press conference, which saw him fined by the league for tampering. He and his former player are now tasked with convincing star forward Carmelo Anthony not to terminate his contract.
Fisher played for 17 seasons in the NBA, becoming the league's leader in all-time playoff wins.
