There's mutual interest between Derek Fisher and the Thunder, according to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com. The Thunder are considering Fisher, among several options, for the role of third point guard behind Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson, but history and "mutual respect" are helping Fisher's case, Berger writes (Twitter links).
Fisher has finished the last two seasons with the Thunder after signing in the middle of the year. The veteran has played a key role in the team's last two playoff runs, averaging 22.3 minutes per contest in the 2011/12 postseason and 23.7 MPG this spring.
If the Thunder bring back the Landmark Sports Agency client, it figures to be on a minimum-salary deal. Even though Kevin Martin agreed to sign with the Wolves, Oklahoma City is still in line to be over the cap, so the team will have to rely on exceptions to replace Martin and improve the roster for next season.
