Derek Fisher Reportedly Reaches Buyout Agreement With Houston Rockets

The move that was predicted a couple of days ago has now come through with the report from Adrian Wojnarowski that Derek Fisher has reached a buyout agreement with the Houston Rockets. His surprising trade to the resulted in the Chronicle’s Jonathan Feigen predicting this would happen, but it took a few days to come to fruition. Now Fisher should have his freedom.

Yahoo! Sports’ Wojnarowski writes, “Fisher will likely have a deal with a contender soon. A new rule in the collective bargaining agreement doesn’t allow him to get bought out after a trade and re-sign with the Lakers this season. Fisher had a $3.4 million player option on his 2012-13 contract.”

Fisher is a 15-year NBA veteran who had started every game this season for the L.A. Lakers before the trade. Is it possible he goes back to Los Angeles? Expect something to happen soon enough as teams try to bolster their roster for the stretch run before the playoffs.
