The Lakers had a large net of possible options to bring in for free agency this year. One name that was mentioned early in the process but long forgotten was former Laker Jordan Farmar. Late Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, the deal was announced.
LAL has reached an agreement to bring back Jordan Farmar on a one-year, vet min contract. Must negotiate buyout w/ his Turkey team first

Farmar left the Lakers following the 2010 season for the New Jersey Nets before eventually being traded to the Hawks, bought out, and going oversees. He’s played in Turkey for the two seasons.
In his last season in the NBA with the Nets, Farmar averaged a respectable 10.4 points, 3.3 assists, and shot 44% from 3-point territory in 21 minutes a game off the bench.
With the Anadolu Efes in Turkey last season, Farmar averaged 13.8 points, 3.9 assists, and nearly one steal a game while shooting 48% from three.
We’ll keep you updated on this situation as well as further signings by the Lakers.
