From what teague said they had to convince fisher to play the small forward role, he was totally against it. And i dont blame fisher, be much better as a HFF/Wing role (along with SPS and cuners)Maybe they do see him as a mid but want to develop other areas of his game?
We are not privvy to why they are playing him there.
He was recruited as a mid and played there his first 2 years.
He's a mid.
