I like Corey Fisher but he's not the greatest fit for the Raps though.
Yeah the newspaper in Columbus reported that a couple days ago after talking to his agent. As the people on draft day said sometimes it is better to be a undrafted FA then drafted in the 2nd round cause you get to choose the team you try out for. Today Lighty said he worked out with the Hawks and has a workout coming up with the Suns. Although with the lockout about to happen not really a good time to be a undrafted FA to prove you belong. One year in Europe might be the best option for him anyways.
