Sources: New York finalizing a 5-year, $25 million deal to hire Derek Fisher as coach. http://yhoo.it/1l1EzFq 

 

Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine  5m

My man @HowardBeck reports that Derek Fisher has formally agreed to accept Knicks' coaching job

 

Fisher's staff is very likely to include Kurt Rambis. Others in mix: Rick Fox, Luke Walton, Bill Cartwright.

Grats to D-Fish!

He will be the first coach in the NBA to wear a head set and the OC will be the zen master himself up in the booth.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Congrats to him. I'd think he'd do a better job than Jason Kidd who has done a good one so far (IMO).

Its funny how the two New York teams both have first time head coaches with zero experienced with any type of coaching.

Of course. We all hoped it would be for the lakers

I have a feeling Fisher will be a great coach if given time for experience.

Yea I'm wondering what is so popular about hiring a player straight out of retirement to coach.

Cant say negative about this hire becoz first of all its dfish and a great guy to have. Although he doesnt have the experience as a coach, i think it all comes down to responding to him as a coach. He's a very good leader and motivator so that counts as a possitive for him. Great hire for the knicks but the lakers need someone with experience to lead our team.

Too much money and too many years...but good luck to ya.

 

Remember how upset Fish was when Blake got a bigger laker contract than he did? And Fish was starting!


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health, 2. High Draft Pick (Randle!) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron!...but the jury is out)

Really mixed feelings here

Love fisher. Laker legend. And it's weird to have these happen now. Fisher wasn't announcing this was his last season or anything. And then boom. Gone. Head coach now, while a couple weeks ago he was playing 30+ mins in a confrence finals

I thought he would play another year, but, I think he took the money... He wasn't going to get 5$ mil a year anywhere for being a player


Now the sad part
Seeing Phil Jackson go to the Knicks, and now fisher, I'm sure some other lakers connected people will fill out the assistant ranks

And you seen who the lakers are talking to?
I'm sure this is how Chicago fans must have felt when they saw what happened in LA when the lakers 3-peated

good for him, glad he got an opportunity. 

 

i think he'll be great in the long run, and i'm sure phil will be pulling most of the string for the first few years, but either way, happy for him
