Lakers News: Jordan Farmar Agrees To Two-Year Deal With Clippers

While the Los Angeles Lakers continue to await the word on whether Carmelo Anthony or LeBron James could join the team next year, some of their best players from last season are moving on.

Jodie Meeks was the first to go joining the Detroit Pistons, then Chris Kaman agreed to a deal with the Portland Trail Blazers, and now Jordan Farmar has agreed to a two-year deal with the Los Angeles Clippers according to Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears:

The deal will likely be for the bi-annual exception of $2.1 million per year. It makes sense for both sides as Farmar wanted to remain in Los Angeles, while the Clippers needed a back-up point guard after losing Darren Collison to the Sacramento Kings.

Despite dealing with some injuries last year, Farmar enjoyed an excellent season for the Lakers. He consistently spoke about wanting to return to the team, but as the summer went forward, it became unlikely that he would be back.

The Lakers still have Steve Nash under contract and while he can’t be relied upon, the team will likely bring back Kendall Marshall, who will cost the team less than $1 million. In addition, the Lakers drafted Jordan Clarkson, who can also play point guard.

It will undoubtedly hurt fans to see Farmar leave, especially to the rival Clippers, but with the team focused on the big names, it allows other teams to talk to the role players.

Farmar enjoyed one of his best seasons as a professional last year, averaging 10 points and five assists while shooting just under 44 percent from 3-point range.
