NBA Rumors for Monday, Feb. 8

InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 1:30 p.m. ET. More stories and other news also appears on the InsideHoops basketball blog, including most of our live updates during the day. Note that NBA trade rumors pick up steam leading to the 2016 NBA trade deadline (February 18 at 3pm ET). Other key NBA rumors-related dates are the 2016 Playoff Eligibility Waiver deadline (March 1) and playoff roster deadline (April 15 at 3pm ET).

nba rumors New York Knicks President Phil Jackson announced today that Derek Fisher has been relieved of his coaching duties. Associate Head Coach Kurt Rambis has been named the interim head coach. Fisher, who was originally hired on Jun. 10, 2014, finishes his Knicks coaching career with an overall record of 40-96 (.294). InsideHoops

The buzz around Fisher’s long-term replacement can be expected to focus on Tom Thibodeau, a perennial playoff coach with the Bulls who has ties to the Knicks organization, or Warriors assistant Luke Walton, another Jackson protege. Fisher had taken some blame for the Knicks’ recent skid after Sunday’s lackluster loss to the visiting Denver Nuggets. NY Post

Two other former Jackson players, Brian Shaw and Luke Walton, are candidates to the full-time job, sources told ESPN. Shaw coached parts of two seasons in Denver, while Walton led the defending champion Golden State Warriors to a record start this season, filling in for injured coach Steve Kerr. ESPN.com

Wednesday marks the jersey retirement for former Detroit Pistons point guard Chauncey Billups, the second this season for a player who flourished in Detroit after previous stops in the NBA. Billups averaged 16.5 points and 6.2 assists during his eight-season tenure with the Pistons, numbers he continued to produce in the four or five seasons after. Michigan Live

nba rumors Knicks star Carmelo Anthony expects to deal with soreness in his left knee for the foreseeable future. "It's not going to heal in a week or a couple days or two weeks," he said Sunday. Anthony believes the soreness is an expected part of his recovery from the knee surgery he underwent last February. ESPN.com

"We have a game Tuesday, and then we don't play until the following Friday," said Anthony, who plans to play Sunday in the All-Star game. "I want to take advantage of that time." ESPN.com

nba rumors The L.A. Clippers announced today that guard Austin Rivers suffered a left hand fracture in the second quarter of the Clippers loss to Minnesota on Feb. 3. Rivers did not play in the Clippers game Feb. 5 in Orlando and underwent an MRI Feb. 6 in Miami that revealed the fracture. InsideHoops

Rivers will be re-evaluated in Los Angeles on Monday and a timetable for his return will be established at that time. InsideHoops
