OKC Thunder considering Derek Fisher?

Per,The Houston Rockets have finalized a buyout with former Los Angeles Lakers guard Derek Fisher.

"After much discussion and expressing their desire to welcome Derek to their team this season as well as the 2012-2013 season, the Houston Rockets and Derek have negotiated a buyout," Fisher's business manager Jamie Wior said in a statement late Sunday night.

Sources close to the situation told's Marc Stein that the Oklahoma City Thunder, who are still trying to fill the void created by Eric Maynor's season-ending knee injury, are deciding whether to register a formal bid for Fisher.

Sources say that the Los Angeles Clippers, by contrast, are not likely to try to sign Fisher, though they also have a need for a playoff-tested guard after Chauncey Billups' season-ending Achilles' tear and with Chris Paul carrying a heavy load.
