Thunder plan to re-sing Derek Fisher for the rest of the year

Derek Fisher played for the Oklahoma City Thunder down the stretch last season.  It looks like he will do the same this season.  The Thunder are reportedly poised to sign Fisher for the rest of this season as the team pushes its way into the postseason.

According to Dave McMenamin and Marc Stein of ESPN, the Thunder plan to use Fisher in a similar capacity to what they did in 2012.  Fisher will officially sign today.  Fisher can't stay away from the game it would seem.

The veteran point guard played nine games for the Dallas Mavericks this season.  However, he suffered a knee injury early in the season, asked to be released, and has been spending time with family ever since.  Some thought it would be the end of Fisher's career, but like other times in the past, the game has drawn him back in.

Fisher is a 17-year NBA veteran.  He has played for six different teams in his career, but he has always contributed.  Even if his contributions didn't always show up in the box score, Fisher had a positive impact on the teams he played for.  In his career, Fisher has averaged 8.6 points and 3.4 assists per game.
