Derek Fisher was in the center of several stories Monday. With the Oklahoma City Thunder’s exit from the NBA playoffs, it is expected Fisher could end his playing career and attempt to transition into coaching.

Both the Lakers and the Knicks have been reported to be interested in Fisher’s services should he choose to retire. Obviously, Fisher has strong connections to both franchises as he played the majority of his career with the Lakers under current Knicks president Phil Jackson.

Last week, Jackson made comments revealing his interest in bringing Fisher to New York. As a result, the NBA fined him Monday for tampering.

The Lakers are also reportedly considering Fisher as a replacement for Mike D’Antoni. In addition, the team is speculated to have discussions with Scott Skiles and Larry Brown.

Elsewhere around the league, Kevin Love’s future remained a highly discussed topic. While the Minnesota Timberwolves want to have Love on their roster coming to the season, the possibility of him being traded elsewhere remains out there.
