The Indiana Pacers need a point guard. Jordan Farmar is a point guard who wants to show he can run a traditional offense and not be tied down by the confines of the triangle.
The Pacers have reached out to Farmar, but have only offered a one-year deal, according to Mark Spears from Yahoo Sports.
Both Portland and New York have shown interest in him as well.
It’s a little hard to project Farmar because in the triangle offense he was really asked just to be a spot-up shooter much of the time. And that’s not his forte. But when he did get the chance to create in the offense off the dribble he seemed to force is own shot a little too much. Was that because he wanted to take his few chances in the offense or because that’s who he is? We will see.
But there is no other guard you can get at this price who has two rings and played a lot of key minutes in the finals.
He is good leading the break, something he would do a lot in Indiana or New York. However, you can bet he wants more than a one-year deal.
