The Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA have hired Derek Fisher as head coach, league sources tell ESPN. Brian Agler resigned as the team's head coach last week, leaving a vacancy that will be filled by the former National Basketball Association player and head coach.
Fisher played 13 seasons as the Los Angeles Lakers point guard over two stints from 1996 to 2012.
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.
The former National Basketball Association player and coach will be introduced at a news conference on Friday.
This is the first-time he has been a coach of a WNBA franchise.
Agler had previously led the Sparks a WNBA championship in 2016. That being said, Fisher's a midseason firing after compiling a 40-96 record in one-plus seasons marred his tenure in NY. "I look forward to working with someone with championship pedigree and who has a track record of strong leadership". His introductory press conference will take place on Friday. Last year, the Sparks reached the second round of the WNBA playoffs before being eliminated by the Washington Mystics.
