National Basketball Association champion and former NY Knicks head coach Derek Fisher is back in the coaching ranks. Last year, the Sparks reached the second round of the WNBA playoffs before being eliminated by the Washington Mystics. He went 40-96 in two seasons at the helm for the New York Knicks and was sacked midway through his second season after the team posted a 23-31 record. News conference is set for Friday.

Fisher inherits a team that was 19-15 in 2018, the sixth-best record in the 12-team league. Fisher replaces Brian Agler. Brian Agler resigned as the team's head coach last week, leaving a vacancy that will be filled by the former National Basketball Association player and head coach.
