You know what, I wanted Barbosa, but hey, why not have someone who's been to the finals 8 times already and won 5 times.


And he deserves to have his revenge against Miami if we face them in the finals and he deserves to retire as a Laker!


C'mon, 1 more season with Fishhy!! :rock:

If they sign him they beat OKC.
If they don't they lose.

It's as simple as that.

As far as I know there's no reason you can't sign a guy who you traded away and then whose contract expired.

The closest thing is the following (per Larry Coon's FAQ), but it doesn't apply here:

A team cannot reacquire a player they traded away during that season (a season being July 1 - June 30). If he is waived by his new team, then he cannot re-sign with his original team until the one-year anniversary of the trade, or until the July 1 following the end of his contract, whichever comes first. However, if a team trades a player's draft rights, they can reacquire the player during the same season.

Good point, never thought of it like that. Thunder better change up their gameplan for when they play the Lakers, sure glad the Heat didn't sign him...

Those of you who are saying he needs to retire and he's too old, you're ignorant. The guy can still score. Not anything more than 10 points a game, but as a backup to the backup, I can't think of many other players that can do the same. He was perfect for OKC last year. He knows what it means to be a role player. He's been through similar situations here in LA, he would be our nucleus

We cant sign him until a year after we traded him.

He sure wasn't what you're praising him as last year.....and no, he can't score consistently and certainly not enough to help a team offensively. His shooting was pretty terrible last year and even Laker fans on here would tell you that much. Don't even get me started on his defense either.

Great for the locker room and a guy to keep Kobe in check. Yes I said that. Good cop, bad cop roll. Inside info on OKC and a playoff clutch performer. I say sign him.

His shooting was terrible because he was playing against starters the majority of the time. He was our starter. Of course he can't score against the likes of Westbrook, Parker, Paul, Williams, etc... His defense suffered because he coudn't guard any starters or their backups. But will he take a shot if open? Yes. So if he is the backup to the backup, still playing with several all stars on the floor, then I believe he will still score 10 points (max) a game if he plays 15-20 minutes. What Fisher brings to a team is alot more than his productivity and/or presence on the floor. Him, Nash, and Kobe are like assistant coaches. Coaching the other players on every play so that everyone is on the same page at all times. For Fisher to be effective, he doesn't even have to enter a game. His influence alone motivates the rest of the team.

No... the thing here is that he was trade to the Rockets, who waived him. Then he signed with the Thunder. So the rule is actually that he can't sign with the Rockets. Because there are two teams inbetween when he WAS a Laker and now, he can resign with them. Had he stayed with Houston last season he would not have been able to sign with LAL.

Lamar Odom wanted to come back to LAL, but he COULDN'T because the Mavs were the only team he had played for, so he had to settle for the Clippers, or wait out part of the season.

They didn't work him out. He was just using the facility.

JasonJohnHorn

This.

Let him sign a contract to officially retire as a Laker. But fact of the matter is, they got Blake AND Duhon... so they really don't need a 4th PG.

Fisher was a great role player, and he's got a high basketball IQ and can be a great mentor. Having him on as a member of the coaching staff would be a great move. Having him on the floor? Not so much.

JasonJohnHorn

The rules is that you can't re-sign with your LAST team until a calander year has gone by. His "last" team is Houston. Had he stayed with Houston, as I mention in a post above this, then he would have to wait to sign in LAL, but because Houston waived him and he signed with OKC, he's clear to sign with LAL now.

This is a waste of time. Fisher is terrible, IVE NEVER LIKED HIM PERIOD, i think he's always been absurdly overrated, but at this point in his career, even his experience doesnt help. Besides how much veteran leadership do you need (thats all he can provide)?

And wasnt he having one of the worst years ever by any starter last year?

and fisher had his chance to do so in this past yr's finals, but we all know how that turned out. Thought KD could replace Kobe. PPPfffffttttt :)

Fisher is the missing piece to that team im telling you. Ppl talk about Kobe with 5 rings, but Fisher has 5 rings too and he contributed significantly to each and every one.

However, he should have been retired 2 years on the last Laker championship
