OKC Signs Derek Fisher

The Oklahoma City Thunder tried to recapture the magic when they signed five-time NBA champion Derek Fisher on Friday for the remainder of the season.

Fisher joined the Thunder in March of last year and was a major part of their run to the NBA Finals. Now, he will join the team again to attempt to go on a similar run this season.

Earlier this season, Fisher, a great leader in the locker room, played with the Mavericks before asking for a release, citing family reasons.

The Thunder currently sit three games behind the Spurs for first in the Western Conference and hope that Fisher can provide the veteran experience needed to compete for a championship once again.

Fisher, also the NBA Players Association President, is thirty-eight years old.
