REPORT: Derek Fisher Dismissed as Sparks Coach

According to multiple reporters, the Los Angeles Sparks have reportedly dismissed Coach Derek Fisher.

Fred Williams will take over as interim head coach.

This season, the Sparks are off to a 5-7 start, good for fourth in the Western Conference. Fisher went 54-46 during his nearly four-year tenure with the Sparks. Fisher led Los Angeles to two playoff appearances, losing in the first-round on both trips before missing the playoffs entirely during the 2021 season with a 12-20 record.

The Sparks return to action on Saturday with a contest against the West-leading Las Vegas Aces (10-2).
