Jazz at 35: No. 39, Derek Fisher
The Tribune is doing a season-long project to commemorate the Utah Jazz's 35th anniversary. In all, 214 players have worn Jazz uniforms. Continuing daily, columnist Kurt Kragthorpe ranks them all, from bottom to top.

Why he's No. 39 ? Fisher shot only 38.2 percent in 2006-07 while averaging 10.1 points, but his leadership was credited with helping a young team reach the Western Conference finals.
