HoopsHype Jordan Farmar rumors

July 3, 2014 Updates

The Lakers have already expressed interest in Farmar as well, but their plan at point guard for next season is still up in the air with 40-year-old Steve Nash on the books for $9.7 million, Kendall Marshall expected to be retained on a non-guaranteed deal worth approximately $915,000 and rookie Jordan Clarkson, a combo guard out of Missouri, added to the mix after L.A. acquired him from Washington on draft night for $1.8 million.

Farmar has also heard from a "few other teams" and is "going through the process" of free agency, according to a league source, knowing full well that some of the big-ticket free agents such as LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony are causing many teams to freeze on smaller transactions until those players' destinations are settled.

“I want to be a Laker,” Farmar told this newspaper in a phone interview. “I like playing for Mike. Whether it’s Phil Jackson, Mike D’Antoni or whoever else coaches this team, that won’t deter me from wanting to be a Laker.” Los Angeles Daily News

The Lakers want to re-sign Farmar, mindful he would be necessary insurance for Nash, who is expected to stay so his $9.8 million salary gets off the Lakers’ books for the 2015 offseason. Farmar would love to have a long-term future here. Los Angeles Daily News

Young and Farmar have been rivals going back to high school in the San Fernando Valley, where Young played for Reseda Cleveland and Farmar for Woodland Hills Taft. Farmar won three of four head-to-head meetings in college and got to rub it in again last month at the Galen Center when he attended UCLA's 10-point victory over USC as Young's guest. "He didn't want to pay his bet," Farmar said. "I just made him pay for my valet and it was all good." Los Angeles Times

With that in mind, it was awfully striking to hear Farmar's response Friday night after the six-year veteran scored a career-high 30 points in a 126-122 win over the Sacramento Kings when asked if he had any thought about continuing to play backup point guard for Lakers the second time around. "I don't care," Farmar said. "I don't care, man. It's just trying to play good basketball when I'm in there, have fun with whoever is out there on the floor with me." ESPN.com
