Rumor: Jazz Want Derek Fisher

New, comments

From Tim Buckley of the Deseret Morning News:

If the Jazz can't find shooting help via free-agency, they may have an alternate route to fill their glaring need. It's believed Utah has spoken with Golden State about trading for veteran guard Derek Fisher, and a proposal may be on the table. The 31-year-old Fisher has played 10 NBA seasons, eight with the Lakers. It's not known what the Jazz would have to give to get him.

Unless the Warriors are simply trying get out of another ridiculous Chris and Rod contract, it doesn't seem like the Jazz have much to offer for Derek Fisher. It would take more than Fisher salary cap wise to bring in Carlos Boozer, who would immediately help the Warriors.

Are there any practical Derek Fisher trades to the Jazz that you think would improve the Warriors' win total?

99% of rumors never happen, but 99% of them are fun to talk about!
