Sparks appoint former Lakers guard Fisher as coach


He went 17-65 in 2014-15 as a rookie head coach and was sacked the following season with the Knicks sporting a 23-31 record. The Sparks defeated the Minnesota Lynx, 75-68, in the first round of the playoffs, then lost to the Washington Mystics, 96-64, in the second round.

The Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA have hired Derek Fisher as head coach, sources told ESPN.

On Wednesday, Fisher was hired as head coach of the Los Angeles Sparks, one of the WNBA's most successful franchises but one far removed. "There is no finer organization in the WNBA and I can't wait to work with our ownership group, front office, talented players and staff to cement a culture of sustained excellence, which is what L.A. basketball fans demand - and deserve".

Fisher was a member of five National Basketball Association championship teams with the Lakers during an 18-season National Basketball Association playing career that also included stints with four other teams.

Before becoming a coach, Fisher played for 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association.

The Sparks are expected to announce the move Friday.

"Derek is a champion and proven leader on and off the court", Sparks executive vice president and general manager Penny Toler said. Agler led Los Angeles to back-to-back WNBA Finals appearances, including winning the 2016 WNBA title.
