In need of point guard help, the Dallas Mavericks have come to terms with veteran and former member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Derek Fisher, on Wednesday night according to a report from ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein.

Dallas's starting point guard, Darren Collison, didn't play in Wednesday night's 101-78 loss to the Chicago Bulls due to a sprained middle finger, and while Dominique Jones started in his place, the Mavericks reportedly remain worried about their depth at the position and tried to address the issue by bringing in Fisher.

Fisher played in 20 games last season for the Thunder, averaging 4.9 points (on 34.3 percent shooting from the field), 1.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists in about 20 minutes of play a night. In Oklahoma City's postseason run to the NBA Finals last spring, Fisher averaged 6.3 points per game (shooting 41.5 percent from the floor), with 1.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists in just over 22 minutes of play per night.
