Lakers officially re-sign Derek Fisher

Welcome back Fish!

TSN: The Los Angeles Lakers have re-signed free agent guard Derek Fisher, the club announced Wednesday.

Per team policy, no details of the deal were released. However, according to a report in Monday’s Los Angeles Times, Fisher has agreed to a three-year deal to remain with the team he helped to the last two NBA titles.

Fisher, who turns 36-years old in August, was reportedly being wooed by Pat Riley and the new-look Heat after LeBron James and Chris Bosh signed contracts with the team last week.

But Fisher will stay in LA, where he has spent 11 of his 14 NBA seasons, including the last three. Fisher was also with the Lakers for their three- peat from 2000-2002.

“At the end of the day, there’s one person I could not turn away from. Kobe Bryant asked me to stay but supported whatever decision I made. He and I have played together for 11 seasons, came into the league together as kids, and has been loyal to me even when others had doubts,” Fisher said in a statement. “I have decided to continue with Kobe, continue with our teammates and the fans of Los Angeles…Let the hunt for six begin.”

      When Luke was re-signed, he was averaging 11 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Not bad as a role player and he was the most important role player for us at the time too. Still, I agree, the extension he got was a bit too much.

        What an asshole for being a contract year player. Playing good for one year to get paid then deciding to take a nap for the duration of his new contract. Fuck luke.
