Whether or not they trade for Dwight Howard, the Nets are in the market for a back-up point guard at a cheap price. Thursday night, Howard Beck is reporting that Derek Fisher is considering Brooklyn among others.

Fisher had been talking to the Knicks, but with New York reaching agreement with Jason Kidd, "Fish" is looking elsewhere.

"The Nets are now among the front-runners to sign Fisher, along with the Mavericks, the Chicago Bulls, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Oklahoma City Thunder," Beck writes. "Fisher, who won five titles with the Lakers, joined the Thunder in February and was a key part of the rotation for Oklahoma City, which lost to the Miami Heat in the finals."

With Eric Maynor returning from injury, the Thunder may not need Fisher, who averaged 22 minutes per game in the playoffs, shooting 42 percent (38 percent from three point range).
