Fisher, who helped the Lakers win five National Basketball Association titles, coached the New York Knicks from 2014 to 2016.

Fisher went 40-96 in two seasons at the helm of the Knicks before he fired midway through his second season after the team posted a 23-31 record.

Back in 2016, the New York Knicks fired former National Basketball Association player Derek Fisher following a 23-31 start to the season after going 17-65 in Fisher's first season in 2014-15. Fisher replaces Brian Agler. Agler had an 85-51 record with the Sparks and led the team to the 2016 WNBA championship.

This is the first-time he has been a coach of a WNBA franchise. He also won the 2010 championship with the Seattle Storm.
