NBA News: Houston Buys Out Derek Fisher. Could Miami Be Waiting?

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, of Yahoo Sports, the Houston Rockets have agreed to a buy-out with long-time Lakers guard, Derek Fisher. Although Fisher’s stats may say otherwise, many contenders around the league would love to have his leadership and playoff experience this upcoming postseason.

As many of you know, Fisher was traded at the last minute of last week’s trade deadline for power forward Jordan Hill, in what was the most surprising move of the day. A lot of Laker fans have been grieving and remembering all the good times that Fisher brought to Lakers Nation.

To be clear, the new collective bargaining agreement that Fisher actually was a part of the negotiations for, will NOT allow Derek to get bought out and come back to the Lakers until July 1st, 2012.

What that means is that Fisher will be looking for a contender to join, who will need his experience to show them the way to the promise land.

A few summers ago, when Fisher was a free agent, there was the story of LeBron James picking him from the Miami airport in an attempt to lure him to the Heat.

Now that Fisher’s a free agent, does that mean Miami is the place he wants to be?

How will that affect the way Lakers fans view his legacy?

    i would hate to see key fish head to el heat :(  …..
    if he went to the heat or the celtics, not that celtics are in discussion, it could be disastrous to his laker legacy in the eyes of many laker fans

    Should have kept Fisher and let  him play coming off the bench since The Lakers now have Sessions. Not a big fan of Jim Buss. I really don’t think he has the sharp mind of running a basketball team like his father.

    Larry Coon reported this and Steve Kyler just confirmed it the Lakers can’t re-sign fish for a year and that’s basically what fisher had left on his contract, so any hopes of him coming back to the Lakers are gone.

    I think Fish wants to retire a Laker. I can’t see him signing with anyone this year…

    wouldnt see why he wont sign with the heat, gets a chance to win and he aint a lakers no more so it doesnt matter to him what team he goes to. Pretty sure the only team he wont choose is boston but other than that i think fish would go anywhere. At this point he is disgusted with the way they treated him.

    Were ever fisher goes im still his fan!

    Definitely don’t want to see him play for the heat or boston.  Hoping he sits out the rest of the year and then comes back to the Lakers.  Been sad enough this week thinking about him leaving, and now thinking about the amazing record he had of not missing games, and now that’s kinda broken.  I know the stats were not missing games due to injury, but still tough to see someone so consistent like that not playing.
