11:48am: Fisher will sign with the Thunder when he clears waivers tonight, tweets TNT's David Aldridge.
10:03am: Derek Fisher won't clear waivers until later this afternoon, but when he does, it looks as if he'll sign with the Thunder. According to Randy Renner of NBA.com, Fisher was spotted in Oklahoma City's Will Rogers World Airport this morning with GM Sam Presti and other members of the Thunder's front office. ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported yesterday that Fisher was "very close" to commiting to the Thunder.
Fisher, 37, was bought out by the Rockets shortly after Houston acquired him in a deadline deal with the Lakers. The Thunder, Heat, and Spurs were considered potential destinations for the point guard, who also had interest in joining the Bulls. The Thunder emerged as the favorites based on their financial flexibility, the role they can offer Fisher, and the potential opportunity to face the veteran's former team in the postseason.
