09:30 AM ET 02.25 | The Oklahoma City Thunder are preparing to re-sign veteran guard Derek Fisher, according to sources familiar with the team's thinking. Sources told ESPN.com that the Thunder, after trading Eric Maynor away last week before the NBA's trade deadline, have made plans to sign Fisher, who joined Oklahoma City for the stretch run in March 2012 after the Los Angeles Lakers dealt Fisher to Houston. The veteran guard will sign with the team Monday for the remainder of the season, according to multiple league sources. The Thunder declined comment late Sunday.

Fisher, the man, the myth the legend... He is the gift that keeps on giving lol, how much he has left though? Seriously though he did provide OKC something in the playoffs last year and they can't fully trust Jackson yet.

Funny how he ditched Dallas because he was homesick.

Dude just wanted to play for OKC or go back to the Lakers.

He wants 6 rings, like Mike.

Yes sign him please ruin team chemistry! What can he have left?

Anything to stay the president of the players unions right Derek? That's why he signed with Dallas. If he hadn't, then the players would have had to find a new president of the union.

And if the players decided to put Derek in Billy Hunter's old job. Then the players are dumber then I thought. The owners will eat him alive when it's time to make a deal.

Billy Hunter is gone. It's time for Derek Fisher to also go and let someone new to run the union. Go home Derek, you're done.

Look Suckers wit all the Fishers barbs, I not a Fisher fan and never have been, but I do respect the fact that in Fish you get an experience and seasoned butch kid professional thug. It's the same as KMart signing wit the Knicks, seasoned thugs with a understanding is something every team needs during season's ending stretch runs and the playoffs. Fisher don't hand out bittch fouls and can hit the big shot. This is a smart move by them, and if you don't believe me, just look in the next 10 games how the Knicks paint lane changes when KMart is in there rather than Stat biittch ****. There certainly gonna be some floor dropping rather than all the and ones you get when Stat **** is in the lane. Playoffs time, I'm for all bows and major detriments waiting for free lane seekers. I like this move by OKC and I like the thugmentations of the Knicks in KMart. This is apple and suckers shutty, I'm out!

Dude - just concentrate on your family and stoo teasing teams.

This boy knows how to stay healthy...

February 25, 2013  12:11 PM ET

D. Fish is just a shady character to me now...after the situation with going from team to team and leaving under strange terms, just to be to yet ANOTHER team....

He doesn't need the money, so, I am not sure what his motivation is. Retire and take care of your family man. You for the glory and rings and money....

This may be fallout from his shady Presidency with the Player's Union though...getting lawsuit money together!
