Derek Fisher signs with Thunder

I like this, it proves OKC want to win the c/ship by signing this cagey vet. Whats the bet he hits some big shots in the playoffs to help them advance. They will more than likely have to get past the Lakers as well which adds some spice. With Patty mills @ Spurs it certainly spices up the West Conference guard rotations!

Brings experience and past-success to a young team.

Good signing, BUT as an OKC fan, I sure as hell don't want him playing 25 minutes like he has been averaging this season.

Good signing. Definitely a great leader and developer for the players off the court and in training.

Best fit for both sides, very excited to see Fish in an OKC jersey!

Think Fish is on a decline compared to previous years, but can still contribute and will be a good veteran player for a young team.

Wearing jersey 37 - a clear tribute to Adam goodes.

BTW How can he legally just not turn up for Houston cos they're not contenders and as a result get sent to a contender? Wouldn't the NBA have some rule preventing players from doing this?

I don't think Houston really wanted him either.....They traded for the draft pick. Right now Fisher offers next to nothing on the court, he could soak up a few minutes here and there but he is a shell of his former self. The value lies in the championship experience he has, I'd think he would almost take a coaching role. He will be that calming influence on Westbrook in tight situations.
