The Oklahoman reports that Fisher will sign a one-year deal with the Thunder worth the veteran’s minimum of $1.4 million. Fisher, a fan favorite in Los Angeles, was traded by the team in 2012 as part of the Jordan Hill deal.

Fisher, who traveled to Oklahoma City from Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon to sign the contract, will join the Thunder on the veteran’s minimum, or roughly $1.4 million.

Although Fisher is not someone who will fill up a box score, he is a veteran leader both on and off the court. The point guard can be counted on to make big shots as he has done so throughout his successful career.

The Thunder will be one of the favorites to come out of the Western Conference next season, and Fisher will without a doubt be an integral part to the team’s run.

Fisher won all five of his championships as backcourt partners with Kobe Bryant and at this point, the close friends are battling to see who gets to six rings first.

    I wish Dfish the best, he has been a loyal contributor for a long time and wish he could have stayed but the business side of the Lakers needs does not fit his criterias anymore.
    Good luck and good Health.

    DFish retires, goes the way of Jason Kidd and signs on as head coach of the Lakers with PJax in a management/recruiting position – we’d really have something. EVERYONE in the league (maybe with the exception of Cuban) respects the man and his leadership skill. Would’ve loved to see him go out a Laker though, but if there’s anyone who I can tolerate beating Kobe in the ring dept – it’s Fish

    FISH … Fish … fish …. ish .. sh …….. COME BACK … Back … back …. ack … ak.

    Oh well, too late this year. Maybe next year … as coach!!!

    Too many highlights to point out with D but the 0.4 seconds vs. spurs, IMO tops them all… Definitely sure he’ll get an ovation when he returns to Staples. Wish him the best though we’ll be seeing him around as a coach or within a coaching staff.

    He has too many credentials aside of championship leadership for no one to give him a shot. Given his talent I see him as a type of coach that gets the attention and respect of his players without questioning his decisions given his ring count and clutch play. He basically comes with a lot of cred.
