Derek Fisher signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder today after clearing waivers as expected. Fisher will play tonight when the Thunder host the Los Angeles Clippers.
“We are excited to add Derek to the Thunder and believe his experience and abilities will make a positive impact with our team,” Thunder GM Sam Presti said in a press release. ”He is someone that will enhance our roster’s current and future development on and off the floor through his knowledge, professionalism and approach to the game.”
Fisher will likely get some run tonight with the second unit and possibly play some with the starters. It will be interesting to see the blend and if his impact is anything of significance for the team with the best record in the Western Conference.
Fisher surrendered his entire 2012-13 salary to secure his buyout with the Houston Rockets.
