However, he ended up spending time with Gloria Govan, who was once a regular on the reality television show “Basketball Wives” and is reportedly Fisher’s girlfriend.Fisher and his wife filed for divorce in March.

Fisher, who was expected to coach the Knicks in their preseason opener on Wednesday, is reportedly considering filing charges. The Knicks have not commented on the incident.
The New York Knicks do not play the Memphis Grizzlies until January 16th, 2016, but that game just got a lot more interesting, because of an off court incident that happened on Saturday night. New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher was in Los Angeles, hanging out with Gloria Govan who is the estranged wife of Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes, when Barnes showed up and attacked Derek Fisher.
According to reports, Matt Barnes leaned that Derek Fisher was Gloria Govan’s house, (a house that she once shared with Barnes) and he “went crazy”. Barnes got in his car and drove 95 miles to confront Fisher. When Barnes arrived, Fisher was at a bonfire in Govan’s backyard at a bonfire with family and friends, and Barnes immediately attacked Fisher. There is no word on the severity of the damage that Fisher sustained in the attack, but Fisher may pursue legal action against Barnes, and the NBA is investigating the incident.
Gloria Govan is smoking hot, and as you can see in the pictures below, Govan and Barnes spent time with Fisher and his wife while the couples were all in tact. Now Fisher and his wife are divorced, Barnes and Govan are separated, and a source confirms that Fisher and Govan are dating.
