Derek Fisher reportedly finalizing a deal to become the coach of the New York Knicks

LA Times -
Multiple reports have Derek Fisher and the New York Knicks finalizing a deal to make the former Lakers guard a well-paid head coach.

According to Yahoo Sports, Fisher could earn in the range of $25 million over five years.

Fisher, who just finished his 18th season with a deep playoff run as part of the Oklahoma City Thunder, has been heavily recruited by Knicks President Phil Jackson -- who was even fined $25,000 by the league for tampering while Fisher and the Thunder were in the Western Conference finals.
The New York metropolitan area LOVES it's former point guard coaches doesn't it?

Congratulations to Derek Fisher on landing his first head coaching job. The combination of Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher should be enough to have some interesting conversations with free agents this summer.

No word yet on what this latest move will mean for Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, and/or JR Smith.
