Free agent veteran point guard Derek Fisher is currently working out with the Los Angeles Lakers:
 
EL SEGUNDO(CBSLA.com) 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 theses pre-training workouts.
 
Fisher was traded to the Houston Rockets last season, but then was released a few days later and picked up by the Oklahoma City Thunder off waivers.
 
“It’s great to be able to come here a couple of weeks before training camps, and then have training camp,” said veteran Antawn Jamison. “As a veteran you hate the eight preseason games, but this is a situation where it goes to your favor.”
 
This isn't the first time that Fisher and the Lakers get back to flirting after going separate ways. Fisher traded last season as the Lakers were looking for a younger point guard (Ramon Sessions). He ended up getting picked up by the Oklahoma City Thunder, in a failed attempt to win his sixth ring, without the team that drafted him, and with whom he won 5 NBA championships. There are not hard feelings between the two parts, and I can definitely see Fisher in the lakers' roster this season. I just don't think Steve Blake solidified his spot.
