HEAT AND THUNDER POINT TO FISHER
Thu, 22 Mar 2012 12:15 PM EDT

The Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder have emerged as the ahead of time leading players in the race to sign veteran guard Derek Fisher after he clears waivers, according to resources near to the scenario.

With the Chicago Bulls requiring another big man more than another guard and the San Antonio Spurs still optimistic they can finished the signing of guard Patrick Mills by week’s end, resources declared that Miami and Oklahoma City are the present front-runners to land Fisher, who was formally waived by the Rockets.

The Miami Heat explored the possibility of signing Fisher when he was an independent agent in the summertime of 2010 and have powerful attention again now, sources say, regardless of whether they’re successful in signing veteran forward Ronny Turiaf. Miami has only 1 open roster spot at present, but newbie shooting guard Terrel Harris hasn’t played in 6 weeks and therefore looms as a possible applicant to create space if the Heat desires to make room for both Fisher and Turiaf, who was just waived by Denver.

Oklahoma City, in the meantime, is still trying to fill the void made by Eric Maynor’s season-ending knee injury and, according to sources with knowledge of the Thunder’s thinking, is intrigued by the chance of adding Fisher’s championship knowledge to a team that’s leading the Western Conference but still young.

It is yet to be seen whether star forward Kevin Durant’s recent decision to sign with Rob Pelinka as his new representative suggestions the scales, since Pelinka as well represents Fisher. In addition, there is a feeling among some rival teams that the possibility of signing with a team in the West and having the possibility to face the Lakers in the playoffs after his ouster is another factor that could help the Thunder in their pursuit of Fisher.

Sources say the idea of signing with the Bulls is something that forcefully interests Fisher, but Chicago is well stocked at point guard and appears to be concentrated on attempting to land Turiaf.

The L.A. Clippers, sources say, have similarly shown little interest in chasing Fisher. That’s even though the Clippers, like Miami and Oklahoma City, have a requirement for a playoff-tested guard after Chauncey Billups’ season-ending Achilles tear and with Chris Paul carrying an increasingly heavy load.

The Spurs, in contrast, have long been fans of Fisher, sources declared. But San Antonio, by all suggestions, is pressing ahead on the Mills front in the hope of culminating its planned signing of the Australian point guard, who spent much of this season playing in China.

Fisher was officially placed on waivers at 6 p.m. ET Monday, giving teams under the income cap 48 hours to claim him. He was owed less than $1 million for the rest of this season and had a player option worth $3.4 million for next season.

Fisher’s abandon of next season’s $3.4 million marks the 2nd time in his career that he has left a significant amount on the table to help a move he wants. In 2007, Fisher gave up roughly $8 million owed by the Utah Jazz to come back to the L.A Lakers.
