Earlier in the week, there were reports that Jordan Farmar was interested in returning to the NBA, and him and the Lakers had “mutual interest”. However, it is now unlikely that Farmer will come back overseas due to his contract.
Jordan Farmar isn’t returning to Lakers. Has 2 more yrs on Turkey contract. The buyout he’d have to pay is more than Lakers would pay him.

Jordan Farmar signed a three year, $15 million contract when he went overseas, so even if he wanted to come back, I’m not sure he would because he probably wouldn’t get that big of a contract when he comes over.
