Derek Fisher Doesn’t Plan to Retire Yet

Derek Fisher is 35 and doesn’t have a contract beyond this season with the Lakers.

Fisher’s thoughts are on helping the Lakers win consecutive championships, on playing his best to help the cause.

"I put aside as far as me thinking this could be it in terms of my last postseason playing basketball," Fisher said. "I know for sure that’s not true.

"This is the last year on my contract. I know I want to play basketball after this. I will play basketball as long as somebody is willing to offer me a job. But that doesn’t mean that it’s going to be on a team that can win a championship.

"So, from that perspective now is the only thing that matters. You can’t think about next year. You can’t think about the past. It’s just about right now."
