According to The Sporting News, the Houston Rockets have agreed on a buyout with point guard Derek Fisher, as expected. Fisher will clear waivers and become a free agent. 

The 37-year-old was traded to the Rockets on the day of the NBA trading deadline, where the Lakers received Jordan Hill. 

Fisher won't be able to re-sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, as the new CBA rules won't allow that. However, he will be able to re-join them in the off-season, but it doesn't seem likely. However, the report says he will likely sign with a contender this season. 

Kevin McHale said yesterday that he is never seen Fisher and had him marked as "not on the team."

Fisher is currently averaging about six points and three assists per game.
