In the 2012-13 NBA season, the Oklahoma City Thunder signed former Los Angeles Lakers' star Derek Fisher and the addition helped push them into the NBA Finals. According to Fox Sports on Feb. 25, the Thunder just agreed to a Derek Fisher deal to bring him back to Oklahoma City once again.
The Thunder let Fisher go after the NBA Finals appearance and he quickly found a new home with the Dallas Mavericks. However, after only playing nine games with the Mavericks, he asked for his release to go back to his family in Los Angeles. The Thunder management sees Fisher as a quality locker room leader and convinced him to return to Oklahoma City for another NBA title run.
The Thunder recently promoted second-year guard Reggie Jackson to be Russell Westbrook's immediate backup and then traded Eric Maynor for future consideration. That left the third guard position open and the Thunder quickly agreed to the Derek Fisher deal.
Oklahoma City still sits behind the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference and have the third best record in the entire NBA. With Fisher back on board, the Thunder hope to make it back to the NBA Finals and bring the first NBA Championship to Oklahoma City.
