Fisher travels to Miami

Miami Heat president Pat Riley has invited Lakers free agent Derek Fisher to South Florida as Riley attempts to surround LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh with talented and experienced players. Riley and Fisher are scheduled to meet today in Miami. James, Wade and Bosh give the Heat a high-powered trio of superstars, but the roster still needs more names. Fisher would give the Heat some serious veteran leadership plus a championship background. After all, Fisher has won five titles in seven trips to the Finals with the Lakers. Fisher also has not ruled out a return to the Lakers. Talks between Fisher’s agent, Rob Pelinka, and Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak are said to be ongoing. In addition to the Heat, the Chicago Bulls, the Minnesota Timberwolves and the New Jersey Nets are believed to be interested in signing Fisher.
