Jordan Farmar is returning to the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Dave McMenamin.
Farmar has spent the past few years in Turkey and the team will need to negotiate a buyout with his team overseas first:
[pullquote]Jordan Farmar has agreed to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, the veteran guard told ESPNLosAngeles.com Tuesday night.
The sides agreed to a one-year, veteran minimum deal. L.A. must first negotiate a buyout with Farmar’s club in Turkey, in the $500,000 range. The buyout does not count against the salary cap.[/pullquote]
Farmar, now 26, last played in the NBA for the New Jersey Nets in 2011-12 where he averaged 10.4 points and 3.3 assists in just 21.3 minutes per game. He also shot 44% from three-point range.
The first free agent the Lakers came to terms with was center Chris Kaman on Monday.
