NBA Rumors: Jordan Farmar wants to return to Los Angeles Lakers


When Jordan Farmar re-joined the Los Angeles Lakers this season, it was a feel good moment for those in Hollywood as Farmar brought with him nostalgic memories of success.

But the addition wasn’t thought to be a long term commitment, at least not at first. But Farmar had played well during his stint with the Lakers and hopes to return next season.

Hence, why Farmar wants to stay with the Lakers when he becomes a free agent this offseason.

“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.”

The Lakers also reportedly would like to keep Farmar, who provides solid play at a relatively team friendly price. But the Lakers offseason plans will likely be dictated on what they do in free agency. Players like Farmar are used to round out the roster after name players are signed – but the Lakers say they’re waiting until 2015 to make a splash.

We’ll see what happens in the next few months.

    I doubt they bring him back. Nash is under contract (as is Mendenhall) and if we get Exum (that’s a strong possibility since he and Kobe have the same agent) they’d have a logjam at point guard. Even if we use the stretch provision on Nash, Farmar would be the likely 3rd stringer if he re-signed. Not sure if he wants to be riding the pine that much.
