The New York Knicks announced that 18 year NBA veteran Derek Fisher will take the head coaching job, accepting a 5 year $23 million deal.  Team president Phil Jackson announced that Fisher will take over next year, replacing Mike Woodsen who was fired after the team failed to make the playoffs. Fisher played for Jackson for nine years in Los Angeles, so this will be a familiar pairing for Fisher. Considered one of the smartest players in the game, Fisher played in an NBA record 259 playoff games during his career, becoming known for creating crucial clutch plays when the game was on the line. He won five championships with the Lakers, and also spent time in Golden State, Utah, Dallas, and Oklahoma City. He was also the former President of the National Basketball Player’s Association.
