Jordan Farmar returning to the Lakers

San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers, Game 5

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:

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 Lakers are also said to be interested in Lamar Odom and Sasha Vujacic.

The first free agent the Lakers came to terms with was center Chris Kaman on Monday.
