Fisher, a five-time National Basketball Association champion player and former head coach of the New York Knicks, will be introduced at a news conference on Friday in Los Angeles, sources said.

Derek Fisher's coaching career did not go particularly well, as the former New York Knicks coach registered a 40-96 record in a year-plus at the helm in Manhattan before getting fired. He was hired in 2014, but was sacked less than two seasons into a five-year deal. He went 40-96 in two seasons at the helm for the New York Knicks and was sacked midway through his second season after the team posted a 23-31 record.

The team's previous coach, Brian Agler, resigned Friday after four seasons with Los Angeles.

Agler had previously led the Sparks a WNBA championship in 2016.

Valve Brings Battle Royale to Newly Free-to-Play CS:GO
Perhaps trying to emulate that game a little, Counter-Strike: GO now has a Battle Royale mode...and has also gone free-to-play. New players will receive access to all game modes, matchmaking, and a limited set of item drops and weapon cases.

Derek Fisher has a new coaching gig, and this time he'll be in a familiar setting.

Fisher played 13 seasons as the Los Angeles Lakers point guard over two stints from 1996 to 2012. He spent time with the Lakers (13 seasons), Thunder (three seasons), Warriors (two seasons), Jazz (one season) and Mavericks (one season). "With his wealth of experience as a former player and head coach, I can't think of a better steward for our basketball team moving forward". "Derek is a champion and proven leader on and off the court".

He has now found his way back to coaching, but in the WNBA.
