Fisher Ruled Out for Lakers Job?

Derek Fisher

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Derek Fisher may have had his options trimmed by one.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting the Los Angeles Lakers would like to narrow their search for a new head coach to those who have previous head coaching experience, which would rule out Fisher.

Fisher has been rumored to be a candidate for the head coaching vacancies for both the Lakers and the New York Knicks.

Fisher also has not ruled out returning next season as a player.

Fisher has played 18 seasons in the NBA and is 39 years old.
