LOS ANGELES (AP) –   Derek Fisher is back at Staples Center as a member of the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder, and he says he’s finally accepted being traded by the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fisher shared hugs with ushers and some of the Lakers training staff as he came on court to shoot 90 minutes before the game Thursday night. He chatted with former teammate Metta World Peace at midcourt and a fan held up a hand-lettered sign reading, “Thanks Fish.”

Fisher signed with the West-leading Thunder last week, shortly after he was traded to Houston by the Lakers and subsequently bought out of his contract instead of playing for the Rockets.

The 37-year-old guard has gone from starting every game with the Lakers this season to a backup role for the Thunder.
