The Knicks did not confirm the hiring, other than saying they were planning a ''major announcement'' with team executives. The person who confirmed the deal spoke on condition of anonymity because neither side authorized the public disclosure of any information related to the deal.
The 39-year-old Fisher just completed his 18th season, finishing his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He played under Knicks President Phil Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers, and helped that franchise win five NBA titles.
