Lakers Rumors: Farmar hoping to return next season

One of the most exciting free agent pick-ups this summer was Jordan Farmar. While various injuries led to a disappointing season, he told LA Daily News’ Mark Medina he’s ready to come back and right the ship.

“I’ll be fine. The Lakers will be fine,” said Farmar, a former Woodland Hills Taft High and UCLA standout. “I have plans and high hopes to be here for a long time. I hope it all works out.”

 

We know as the former Laker who was once seen as an heir to the throne as the next Lakers point guard. What actually happened was Farmar was not brought back following the 2010 NBA Title, and he eventually found himself out of the league. His return to the team this summer was met with much fanfare, and fans were treated to quite a performance as he had 16 points on opening night.

 

However, like every other Laker this season, Farmar’s season was derailed by injuries. Multiple stints on the bench with various injuries cost him around half the season, certainly not the return he was hoping for. Still, in his limited time, we saw a Farmar who could command the team and could find himself as the starter depending on how the season and draft play out.
