With (Steve) Kerr gone, (Phil) Jackson will look for someone to help implement his triangle offense. So the coach he taps to replace Mike Woodson will have to be well versed in it.

Derek Fisher, Jackson’s point guard on five championship Lakers teams, is a likely candidate when the Thunder’s season is over.

Jackson said he is looking for “a leader,” and someone “who has charismatic appeal, and has a forward-looking idea about the game.” Fisher also has been a vocal leader and was the president of the NBA players union.
