by July 10, 2010

Chances Fisher’s using the Heat to create leverage to get the deal he wants in L.A. From ESPN: “Lakers free agent point guard Derek Fisher has a meeting scheduled with Miami Heat president Pat Riley on Saturday, according to a source close to the situation. […] According to a source, negotiations between Fisher and the Lakers have remained positive and the team has put an offer on the table that was stronger than what’s been previously reported (one year, $2.5 million). Fisher returned from a trip to China on Wednesday, but he’s had several conversations with both Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak and Riley.”
