Derek Fisher is leaving Utah. They are setting up a press conference this afternoon to announce why and details. Fisher was my fav.

Salt Tribune: The Jazz will announce in a press conference this afternoon that guard Derek Fisher is leaving the team, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned.
It is not clear if Fisher is retiring or if he’s asking the Jazz to release him from his contract, possibly to play for another team.
If he were to walk away from his contract with Utah, Fisher would forego almost $21 million in salary, which was due to be paid to him over the next three seasons.
