Jordan Farmar

  1. Jordan Farmar made a financial sacrifice to rejoin the Lakers

    Jul 20, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    It’s no secret that the Lakers needed to find talent willing to sign up to play for them at a bargain price to round out their roster for next season, once the plan to convince Dwight Howard to stay fell through and the team still had a payroll north of $70 million staring them in…

  2. It’s official, Jordan Farmar signs with the Lakers

    We’ve known that the Lakers and Jordan Farmar had agreed to a reunion for a week or so, but thanks to a longer-than-expected buyout process with the team Farmar played for last season in Turkey, we’re just now getting the official word that the deal is done. Farmar will return to Los Angeles on a…

    UPDATE 7:41 pm: The Lakers have confirmed that the deal is done. Here is the statement from Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak: “At 6’7,” Nick’s size, ability to create his own shot and athleticism make him a versatile player who will give our lineup multiple looks on the floor. He’s an exciting player, and we’re excited…

  5. Joe Johnson trade to Nets nearly complete, Brooklyn out of Dwight Howard chase

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Nets seem to be thinking about having an interesting team to open the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn with next season, the years beyond that be damned. And Dwight Howard be damned. He has said Brooklyn is the place he wants to be but when this trade for Joe Johnson goes through they would be…

    Via NetsDaily’s Net Income: Armon Johnson, who the Nets looked at before the 2010 draft, has been signed to a 10-day contract, bringing to 22 the number of players who’ve worn the Nets uniform this season.

  10. Video: Michael Jordan holes one out from 55 feet

    Jordan golf

    Usually if we are talking about a 55-footer on this site, Jordan Farmar — or some other long-shot specialist — hoisted one up from the other side of half court to beat the buzzer and it happened to fall. Like say Dwyane Wade. But in this case we’re talking Bobcats owner Michael Jordan…. who as…

  12. Report: Nets interested in Boris Diaw and his expiring contract

    Mar 14, 2012, 11:14 PM EST

    Boris Diaw

    If the New Jersey Nets are indeed at the top of Dwight Howard‘s list of preferred places to play next season, then they’re going to need as much salary cap space as possible — not only to pay Howard, but also to have some money left over to surround him with some decent pieces. It…

  13. Nets would rather get Howard now rather than wait until July

    Mar 14, 2012, 2:56 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    It’s not that the Nets are impatient, but the organization would rather get Dwight Howard now rather than wait until this summer. Even if that’s not the goal of Dwight’s latest statements. There are a couple of good reasons for this. One, the longer they wait the more things that can go wrong. Call it…

  14. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EST

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…

  15. Do you need a closer to win in NBA? George Karl says no.

    Mar 8, 2012, 7:21 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    It looks great when Derrick Rose makes the sweet crossover and drains the jumper to win the game. Hero ball makes heroes when it works. But the league’s best “closers” miss more of those shots than they make. As we start to get more and more information that look at situations and players we learn…

    Kris Humphries, Jordan Farmar

    In looking at Derrick Rose‘s game winner for the Bulls Wednesday, I questioned the wisdom of Milwaukee not doubling him and making any other Bull beat you. The Clippers did that — they started to gravitate toward Deron Williams and if he had gone to shoot two or three defenders would have been there to…

    O.J. Mayo is moving past last season’s disaster which featured a fist fight on a plane with a teammate, a suspension for PEDs, and the first benching of his since he started playing basketball at the competitive level. He’s played well on and off ball, has been more coachable and has rediscovered his scoring knack.…

    Dec 22, 2011, 9:44 AM EST

    DeShawn Stevenson

    DeShawn Stevenson was once dissed in a Jay-Z song because of the players running feud with LeBron James (something that flared up again during the NBA finals last year when Stevenson was with the Mavericks). Soon, Stevenson will play for Jay-Z and his Nets. Stevenson has reached a contract deal with the New Jersey Nets,…

Farmar is a Los Angeles boy, born and raised, who went on to win a couple of rings with the Lakers before going to the Nets. Moving…
