Laker Guard Heads to Miami for a “Visit”

The Heat pillages Toronto, Cleveland and now sets her sights on Los Angeles

The "super-squad" continues being constructed piece by piece. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh led the way and then the bombshell was dropped on Thursday with the announcement that LeBron James would join the duo in Miami.

However, the experts questioned whether the Heat would be able to get complimentary pieces to complete the puzzle. The answer could become clearer as sources say that Derek Fisher, beloved guard of the back-to-back champion Los Angeles Lakers, flew to South Beach on Friday to discuss the possibilities of joining the team.

A source close to the situation told the Los Angeles Times that Fisher wants to on a team that will give him a chance to win another ring -- that would make six. However, with all the recent moves made by the Heat Fisher would have to sign for the league minimum ($1.352 million), a considerable pay cut from last year's salary of $5 million.

How important is the 36-year-old Laker guard? Kobe Bryant told "We need to have him back, it's as simple as that. I don't care what [the cost] is. ... They need to work that out and get him back because his significance to our ballclub and to me cannot be understated."

But don't expect ESPN to have "Decision Day 2: Where Derek Fisher Lands."
