Derek Fisher to play third-consecutive season in OKC

BY foxsports • July 24, 2013

Derek Fisher will play a third-consecutive season in Oklahoma City.

The Thunder have signed Fisher to a one-year deal for the league veteran minimum of about $1.4 million, according to The Oklahoman.

The move leaves the Thunder in better shape at the guard position. Now they will have Russell Westbrook, Reggie Jackson and Fisher at the point guard spot.

Fisher will be 39 when the season starts. He played 24 games last year.

He shot 45.7 percent during the playoffs last year and averaged 8.7 points per game, playing an increased amount due to Westbrook's injury.

With the loss of shooting guard Kevin Martin to Minnesota, OKC is still in need of another player. The Thunder have been rumored to be looking at guard Mike Miller, but there has been no closure on that deal.
