Rick Carlisle wasn't nearly as opinionated on the firing of Derek Fisher as he was after David Blatt's dismissal. "I'm disappointed for him,' Carlisle said of Fisher. "I don't know the specifics of the internal situation. There were in the midst of a pretty good turnaround until the recent stretch, and it's unfortunate. Other than that, I don't know what to tell you." Fisher played for Carlisle and the Mavs in the 2012-13 season, quitting after playing in nine games to supposedly spend more time with his family, only to join the Thunder later in the season.
