The veteran point guard is coming to the end of his contract with the Thunder, and has been linked to the coaching vacancy at the New York Knicks.
The MVP told the New York Post: "Without a doubt. He's a smart guy, smart mind. He's a great motivator, great speaker and can really relate to a lot of guys and demands that respect from everybody. He's a great locker room guy. I'm sure he'll do a great job.
"He's unique, one-of-a-kind. The only guy I ever played with who can address the team in a way as a leader. He's able to address the team more so than anybody I played with, and he backs it up on the court, too."
Fisher, who will turn 40 before the start of the 2014-15 season, announced before the start of the current campaign that this would be his final playing season.
