Several months after leaving the Utah Jazz to focus on the health of his daughter Tatum, 17-months, Derek Fisher, 33, has found himself a new basketball team — which also happens to be his old basketball team — in the Los Angeles Lakers. Tatum was diagnosed in May with retinoblatoma, a rare eye cancer, and Derek says he doesn’t regret his decision to walk away from three years of guaranteed salary with the Jazz.

Tatum’s illness is under control, said a cautiously optimistic Derek, adding that his daughter is "doing great."

Derek and his wife Candace have three other children, including Tatum’s twin brother Drew.
