Derek Fisher works out with the Lakers

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Derek Fisher still doesn't have an NBA home, but he'll always have a home with the Lakers, evidently.

The five-time champion and current free agent doesn't have a team yet, but via CBS Los Angeles, worked out with the Lakers on Tuesday.

Training camp is still two weeks away, but the Los Angeles Lakers held an informal workout Tuesday in El Segundo for their newcomers.

Derek Fisher, who is a free agent, was also in hand along with 1st-year Laker Steve Nash for these pre-training workouts.

Fisher's exit from the Lakers last season was a bit contentious as he was traded to the Rockets at the deadline. He was then waived by them and latched on to Oklahoma City's bandwagon for the final half of the season. But Fisher wasn't exactly thrilled with his unceremonious departure from the Lakers, essentially being traded for scraps.

He's 37 and not attracting much attention on the market. It doesn't seem that the Lakers were necessarily working him out for a roster spot as much as Fisher was working out with them.

Fisher was linked to a few teams like the Heat, Thunder and Bulls this summer but it appears he might have to wait until midseason again if he wants to hitch up with a contender. Otherwise, he might be looking at signing with a younger team.

Obviously the question is begged: Could the Lakers be interested? Unlikely seeing as they're especially deep at point guard currently and have a full roster. Also there's that Fisher can't re-sign with the Lakers until March, because of trade and re-sign rules.
