07:37 AM ET 07.12 | According to one report involving a source close to Derek Fisher, the free agent will re-sign with Los Angeles Lakers. Fisher reportedly received a $2.5 million offer for next season from the Lakers. He has been seeking a two-year contract with a starting salary closer to the $5 million he made last season. Depending on whether the Heat sign both Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem, they could be in position to offer only the veteran's minimum to Fisher.

You don't think Steve Blake is the answer?

Steve Blake is never the answer...as a starter...but much better than Farmar.....as for Fisher he is key to them winning...unless Miami gives him crazy money he will be a Laker always...

Fisher's smart for ditching the three little pigs in Miami to stay in LA. All the players that respect themselves and want to work hard for a ring will shun Miami. Then the old one's and one hit wonders that are supposed to be out of the league will end up with the Heat. The end result will be Miami's elimination and the ugliness that comes with that.

Mark my words... Miami won't win a ring with them three pigs because god don't like ugly!

I actually LIKE Farmer. I think he could be a very good player in the right system. The triangle doesn't fit his game, I don't think. He was productive in his second season when he ran the second unit. They didn't run as much of the triangle, opting instead to play up tempo. Then he had a knee injury his third season, came back too soon and never really seemed to get out of the dog house. He shows flashes of having a solid game.

I'm surprised that Fisher even taked to Miami... LA is obviously his first choice, and it's not like meeting with Riley would get LA to up their offer, they know Miami can't make him a better offer.

They don't have enough money but I do like the pick up for Steve Blake. I think he will fill that void and help fisher during the reg season to allow him to rest for the playoffs. I think Blake is alot better then Farmer

Fish isn't going any where because he came back to L.A for his daughter and L.A doctors. Fish is staying put he has it made while collecting rings

July 12, 2010  08:55 AM ET

Come on Lakers get it done, Fish is a big part of this team and this teams mentallity. He means alot to that locker room and team, lets get him back and get the threepeat!

Then he sure doesn't like YOU!!!!! You Stink!!!!

But why is Miami struggling so for cash? Can't they go over cap to sign Haslem, and offer a better pay to Fisher? With all the wheelings and dealings I don't know exactly how much they got left, but with the big-3, Riley shouldn't think twice to spend. They better make their run before the next gen big-3 gets formed LOL. (sure will happen)

He is not leaving LA I repeat he is not leaving LA.

don't think for a minute that if the $s were right that he wouldn't leave and somehow be able to find quality doctors in another city.

but that won't happen, given his age. the lakers will re-sign him.

Doesn't matter...were it not for Perk going down in game 6 and Joey Crawford being Finals MVP (37-17), Lakers would be cleaning house this offseason.

July 12, 2010  10:15 AM ET

It was never in doubt, Bro.

That's the plan. Steve Blake will have to hold down the fort until CP3 comes to town. Oh I say in the beginning of the year I would give an assesment on Bynum at end of year. Injury prone, but has, proven able to play while injured (which is good cause he always is) post game and defense continued to improved. If healthy can help lead Lakers to future titles ALONG Gasol and Bryant. I keep the Jersey Baller and now pulling for another Caracter...
