In a move that no one saw coming the Lakers have traded Derek Fisher and a first round draft pick to the Houston Rockets for Jordan Hill. The recent trade for Ramon Sessions has made Fisher expendable.
Fisher, a five time champions, has always been considered one of the team leaders. And a stabilizing force in the locker room.
Many fans have already expressed their sadness at Fisher leaving.
It’s no secret that Fishers skills have diminished but I always thought that the Lakers would allow him to go out on his own terms. I, and all Lakers fans, felt that he has earned that.
Unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way.
