Former Lakers point guard Derek Fisher has been hired as coach of the Sparks, the team announced on Wednesday.

Fisher helped the Los Angeles Lakers win five National Basketball Association titles during his 18-season playing career and served as president of the players' union.

National Basketball Association champion and former NY Knicks head coach Derek Fisher is back in the coaching ranks.

The suit says the Woloshins rented the house a year ago after their home was damaged by Hurricane Irma, agreeing to pay $30,000 a month.

He has now found his way back to coaching, but in the WNBA.

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.

"Our ownership group is excited to welcome Derek to the Sparks family", Sparks Managing Director and Governor Eric Holoman said.

The former National Basketball Association player and coach will be introduced at a news conference on Friday.

"Derek is a champion and proven leader on and off the court", Sparks executive vice president and general manager Penny Toler said.

Agler had previously led the Sparks a WNBA championship in 2016.

An introductory press conference will be held Friday, Dec. 7, with more details to come.
