Fisher has been linked to both the New York Knicks and the Lakers head coach openings, and Fisher recently spoke about the decision he will have to make. Phil Jackson has also spoken on the possibility of Fisher coaching the Knicks, and unfortunately for him, will now pay for his comments according to ESPN’s Marc Stein:

The fine comes from Jackson’s comments last week in which he named Fisher as someone who would be on his list of coaching candidates. Jackson went on to detail how he and Fisher have been through many battles together and that he prefers to have a prior relationship with whoever he hires.

Since Fisher was actively playing in the playoffs at the time of Jackson’s comments, he was not allowed to speak on Fisher as a possible head coach.

Fisher does seem to be emerging as the front-runner for the Knicks head coaching position ever since Steve Kerr decided to take the position with the Golden State Warriors. Unfortunately Jackson’s mouth got him in trouble before he could even talk to his potential candidate, and now he has to pay the price.
