Even if it’s still early, what do you expect your near future to be? A return to Europe – and hopefully to Euroleague – for good, or an other try to the NBA? “I will just play it out and weigh my options…The beauty for me is that I have opportunities in both Europe as well as the NBA. The Euroleague is a lot of fun as well, so they are both good options”.
Do you regret your decision to return to the NBA, leaving a more lucrative contract in Anadolu Efes? “Not for one second. I had an amazing time returning to the Lakers… Unfortunately, I got injured which hurt me from earning a big deal, but I enjoy the journey of life and my career. I’m still young and coming into my prime of my career…I have plenty of time to make great money doing what I love”.
What didn’t clicked for you in the NBA and the Clippers? “Coming off of my best season in the NBA… I just never really got an opportunity to play my game and fit in with the team… My minutes and opportunities were at a career low.”
Jordan Farmar signed until the end of the season with up and coming Turkish club Dogus Darussafaka and he gave his first interview after his return to Europe to the Turkish television station NTV. The most interesting part about it? Farmar doesn’t exclude the possibility of playing for the Turkish national team: “In the past we had negotiations about the Turkish national team. I did not play for team USA, so If the Turkish federation makes me an offer , I can play for the Turkish national team. I will be open to an offer.”

Eric Pincus: Confirmed that Farmar was stretched – I’ll recalculate his buyout. Jordan Farmar gave up $949,998 of his salary in buy-out with LA Clippers @BBallInsiders $1.8 mil 14/15, $510,922 cap hit next 3 seasons.
Farmar was asked if it was true that Rivers was hardest on the guard than anyone else on the team. “You’re correct saying that,” Farmar said. “I would assume that. I’ve been doing this for a long time. For whatever reason, and I can’t really put my finger on it, but it just wasn’t a great fit. On paper, initially it looked really good. It was different in reality – I would probably say from both of our perspectives. So that’s why at the end of the day, we both agreed mutually to go our separate ways.”
Farmar’s job was to be the backup point guard behind Chris Paul after Darren Collison signed with the Sacramento Kings. “I just never felt I had a real role,” Farmar said. “We talked in the offseason about what my job was going to be. The opportunity just wasn’t the same. It was never time for me to really ever get going and feel comfortable and feel like I had a place on the team.”
