Farmar spoke to the media on Thursday during the team’s exit interviews and is confident that he’ll be back next year according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

After expressing his desire to return and the confidence level he has in making that happen, Farmar talked about no longer being the third player on the depth chart at the point guard position via Winters:

Farmar returned to the Lakers last summer being behind Steve Nash and Steve Blake on the depth chart. Although unfortunate, Nash dealt with numerous injury problems and Blake was traded to the Golden State Warriors before the NBA trade deadline thrusting Farmar into a much bigger role.

The veteran point guard may have also dealt with injury problems of his own, but for the most part, Farmar’s play was much improved. Farmar turned into a valuable asset for the Lakers and may have earned another contract with the team.
