The pieces are beginning to fall into place for the Lakers, at least it would seem so on paper. After signing Chris Kaman to their mini-midlevel exception, it seems the team has reached an agreement to bring back former Laker guard Jordan Farmar.
According to a source close to the situation, Farmar agreed to terms with the Lakers. All that’s left is the team has to work out a buyout from his Turkish squad first.
We’ll wait and see on the buyout, but for now it does sound like the team has the intention of paying the $500K it would cost to bring back the former UCLA guard.
Details of Farmar’s deal have not yet been released.
Farmar was selected 26th overall in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft by the Lakers, and he played for them from 2006 to 2010, winning consecutive NBA championships in 2009 and 2010.
*Update: 10:22 p.m. – Dave McMenamin of ESPN L.A. has confirmed the initial report;
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
