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.

OFFICIAL: Brian Agler has resigned as Los Angeles Sparks head coach.

Fisher, 44, has not coached at any level since the 2015-16 National Basketball Association season.

The Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA have hired Derek Fisher as head coach, sources told ESPN.

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