Their plan to take over the National Basketball Association even included Fisher's former teammate in Oklahoma City, Kevin Durant. The cause was irreconcilable differences with Jackson's beloved triangle offense. "With his wealth of experience as a former player and head coach, I can't think of a better steward for our basketball team moving forward".
Fisher previously coached the NBA's New York Knicks. Agler led the Sparks to the 2016 championship and is the only coach to have led two different franchises to the WNBA title.
Fisher's tenure as Knicks head coach included a freaky domestic spat involving former teammate Matt Barnes and his estranged wife, Gloria Govan. News conference is set for Friday.

The Sparks went 19-15 in 2018 and lost in the second round of the playoffs to the Washington Mystics.
Fisher replaces Brian Agler, who resigned last month after four seasons at the helm. Brian Agler resigned as the team's head coach last week, leaving a vacancy that will be filled by the former National Basketball Association player and head coach.
Two years ago, Agler guided the team to the WNBA Championship in 2016.
He also won five NBA Championship, all with the Lakers.
