Derek Fisher may have played his last game of his long NBA career on Saturday night in Oklahoma City, but before he even talks with Phil Jackson about the Knicks job he wants a timeout.
Fisher, who turns 40 in August, will take a couple of days to think about whether to retire before jumping into the coaching profession. Fisher is at the top of Jackson’s list for Knicks head coach and is also expected to draw interest from the Lakers. (Lawrence).
Also on Saturday, Warriors coach Steve Kerr — in Oklahoma City as an analyst for TNT — refuted reports that he made a verbal commitment to coach the Knicks to Jackson before backing out. (Lawrence).
