UPDATE: Kevin Ding of the OC Register is starting soften his stance from this article. Had a funny feeling this would happen.
The OC Register is reporting that the Lakers and Derek Fisher have finalized a deal. Is the MLE too much to pay for the former Laker guard? Everyone’s got an opinion. I’d like to be the first to welcome back the Fish!
O.C. Register: The Lakers could use some of the old glory these days, and it’s coming in the form of Derek Fisher.
The Lakers and Fisher were close to an agreement Tuesday night on a three-year contract, likely worth about $16 million.
Fisher became a free agent July 2 in a rare development when he was released from his Utah Jazz contract — giving up the remaining three years and $20.6 million — because he wanted to relocate to a city where 1-year-old daughter Tatum could get optimal care for her rare form of eye cancer.
