With the Dallas Mavericks needing some point guard depth, they turned to a veteran. Derek Fisher and the Mavericks have agreed to a one-year deal, and Fisher will officially make his return to the NBA. He has not played since finishing up the 2011-12 season with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
According to Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein of ESPN Dallas, Fisher could step in and fill a void at point guard immediately for Dallas. The Mavericks have an injured Darren Collison and an inexperienced Dominique Jones. Fisher will provide depth.
With Collison sitting with a sprained finger, Jones made just his third career start in the NBA Wednesday night. The Mavericks want to make sure they don't have to worry about what would happen if both Jones and Collison were injured. Fisher takes that worry away, but of course he is not immune to injury himself. But he is pretty durable.
In his career, Fisher has played a full season, or close to a full season, in ten-straight seasons. He has played in the league for a total of 16 seasons. Fisher has averaged 8.6 points per games and 3.1 assists per game in his career. He is a veteran presence who has been integral in playoff runs for the teams he's been on in the past. He can certainly help boost the Dallas Mavericks.
