Report: NBA Veteran Derek Fisher Done With Coaching (For Now), Working On Comeback To Playing

Longtime NBA veteran and former New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher is working on a comeback to playing, according to ESPN's Ian Begley:

Sources told ESPN Wednesday that Fisher has indeed been "exploring options and expressing interest in playing again."

It is unclear what those options are, specifically. But Fisher returning to the NBA after coaching in the league would be a rarity.

Fisher initially hinted at a comeback when he posted this video on Facebook with the caption "#Imnotdoneyet."

Fisher retired from playing following the 2013-14 season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, then spent a season and a half as head coach of the New York Knicks before being fired in February.

The 6'1" guard has played 18 seasons in the NBA, has won five NBA titles, and has played in an NBA record 259 playoff games - winning an NBA record 161 of those games.

In his final season with the Thunder, Fisher averaged 5.2 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 17.6 minutes per game.
