Former Knicks coach Derek Fisher engaged to Gloria Govan

Derek Fisher scored a new fiancée.

The former Knicks head coach, 43, got engaged to Gloria Govan, 33, on April 7 after more than two years of dating, TMZ Sports reported.

The longtime Los Angeles Laker proposed to the ex-“Basketball Wives LA” star during a get-together at their Los Angeles-area residence.

Their relationship was the source of considerable controversy in October 2015 after Govan’s ex-husband Matt Barnes — then a forward for the Memphis Grizzlies — and Fisher got into a physical altercation after Barnes learned of the romance, the Daily News reported at the time.

Barnes, who has twin sons with Govan, drove from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles at the time to confront Fisher, sources told The News in 2015.

They appear to have settled their differences since, as Barnes congratulated Fisher and Govan on their upcoming nuptials.

“Despite not seeing eye to eye initially w Derek he & I are on the same page & communicate weekly about Isaiah and Carter,” Barnes said, according to TMZ Sports, noting that his sons “love” Fisher.
