Fisher, 37, was traded to the Rockets on Thursday with a 2012 first-round draft pick for forward Jordan Hill. Fisher became expendable after the Los Angeles Lakers acquired point guard Ramon Sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
There's no doubt Fisher's best playing days are behind him, but he still has plenty to contribute. Fisher is averaging a low 5.9 points per game, although his assists are up to 3.3 per game. If a team does decide to pick him up, he can definitely provide savvy veteran leadership, draw some important charges, and nail timely three-pointers. Plenty of championship contenders out there could use a little of each to improve their team.
Fisher has only one restriction now as a free agent: He cannot return to the Lakers, per league rules regarding trade deadline moves. Fisher will not be returning to Los Angeles this season.
