I would love it if we could dump both these guys to Toronto for Jose Calderon.

I would be fine with getting rid of Blake or Duhon without any incoming players...just get rid of one of them to be able to keep CDR and Sacre.

Fisher is definitely not a starter anymore, and probably won't ask to start if Nash is ahead of him, but he carries championship experience, lockerroom presence, and poise.


Probably won't ask to start? There's no way Fish would be able to ask to start over Nash and be able to keep a straight face.


That was the big part of the reason why we shipped him out. He made it clear publicly that he wanted to be a starter. He kind of changed his tune after he was traded, but before that he made it clear that he carried a "high value" on the team. With Nash in the fold, I don't think that'll be a problem.

No it wouldn't be IMO, which is why even though I don't really want him back, I wouldn't be upset if he did come back, he's a good person to have in the locker room. He would have wanted to start over Sessions, but he would have no case if he wanted to against Nash.

There's not a chance in hell Fisher asks, thinks, or imagines starting over Nash. Ever.

He wouldn't ask and it wouldn't even be close to a problem. He may not want to be the 3rd string guy however.

Fisher is done. Id pass if it means he has to play meaningful minutes, even if its only 8-10mpg. If he only plays at the end of blowouts then why not though. Who's to say he'll accept this role though, he's definitely a proud man.

As for Mitch turning Duhon, Blake and the projects into a decent player.....

^ I agree with what you said regarding Fisher. He appears done, and I'm quite certain he still expects to be a starter or at the very least a role player with significant minutes. I would pass.\

Now if Mitch can turn Duhon or Blake into a better backup PG, that would be awesome. Throw Morris in there too if you can Mitch. :man1:

I would be 100% in favor of re-signing Fish, except I'm pretty sure Mike Brown would want to give him some actual minutes on court.
Vitti uttered three words that surely applies to how Bryant made two free throws on one leg, walked off the court on his own and processed his rehabilitation plan amid the pain, frustration and tears.

id love fish to come back. him and nash as the locker room leaders etc would be amazing.

we'd have to get rid of some of our extra PG's before we signed fish though.

I would not want to re-sign Fish. I think that chapter with him and the Lakers as a player as moved on. Maybe in the next year or two, we can see him as a coach or in the FO...

I'm always down to bring Fish back ... in a "locker room guy" role.

I have a strange suspicion that he'll be waiting until March to see if a certain team comes calling . . .

Even in OKC Fish somehow managed to squeeze over 20mpg out of Brooks. I think he believes he still has something left in the tank.

I don't get the reasoning of he could contribute as a bench player. If he looked terrible getting wide open shots with the starters last year (Kobe/Pau/Bynum), why would he look better playing with a second unit that would do even less to hide his weaknesses?

Bringing him for a bench role would result in even more disastrous production. And Fish is still a guy who will play out of his talent zone no matter what position he's in, you could argue he singlehandedly cost OKC a finals game with one of his kamikaze transition layups. Where was his leadership in that series?

Fish's locker room and bench leadership is a positive, yes, but it quickly becomes negated and overwhelmed by his negative oncourt presence. If we could bring him in as an assistant coach it would be great, but actually putting him in a uniform brings much more negatives than positives. Especially considering we've added Nash's leadership, who as a 2-time MVP i'm sure has some experience in that area.

As mediocre and unremarkable as Blake is, Fisher is that much worse and we saw it last season. And so did the front office. Can we please not make this mistake again.
