Dallas Mavericks Sign Derek Fisher

Veteran point guard Derek Fisher is returning to the NBA after agreeing to a deal with the Dallas Mavericks, coach Rick Carlisle said Wednesday night.

The Mavericks are thin at point guard as Dominique Jones made just his third career start for the team Wednesday night against the Chicago Bulls because starter Darren Collison has a sprained right middle finger.

The position has been a bit of a concern for the Mavericks in the early going as Collison has struggled at times.
