NBA Futures Betting: Fisher Won’t Take Heat

NBA Betting Odds and Picks: Well, as surprising as it seems an NBA player actually said “No thanks” to the Miami Heat.

While the Heat were able to re-sign Dwyane Wade and add Chris Bosh and LeBron James, guard Derek Fisher decided against joining Miami in favor of his old team, the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers.

“My free agency was a time for me to re-evaluate my position in the league, reflect on my accomplishments individually and as a teammate, and determine what new goals I want to achieve in the future,” Fisher said on his official website.

“I have decided to continue with Kobe, continue with our teammates and the fans of Los Angeles. While this may not be the most lucrative contract I’ve been offered this off season, it is the most valuable.”

“I am confident I will continue to lead this team on and off the court. Let the hunt for six begin…”

According to ESPN, Fisher’s deal is for three years for $10.5 million with an option in year three and also reports that Fisher met with Miami Heat brass on Saturday in Miami.

With or without Fisher, the Over/Under on the total amount of championships the Miami Heat will win in the next five seasons is 1.5.
