    Some $300,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from the home of former Los Angeles Laker and NBA coach Derek Fisher on Monday, police said.

    An unknown number of suspects entered Fisher's home located in the 5800 block of Shirley Avenue in Tarzana between 7:30 and 10:30 a.m. Monday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

    TMZ Sports reported Fisher's five NBA Championship rings were stolen during the burglary. NBC4 has not confirmed the rings theft.

    After a long career in the NBA, including 13 years with the Lakers, Fisher served as the head coach for the New York Knicks. He is currently working as a TV analyst.

    No one was inside the home when the burglary occurred. The LAPD's West Valley Division responded, but the LAPD's Commercial Crime Division Burglary Section is leading the investigation of the crime.

    Anyone with information was asked to call Det. Prieto at 213-486-6946.
