The NBA lockout rolls on, with no end in sight, and thus Europe has claimed another NBA player. Nets point guard Jordan Farmar has agreed to sign with Israeli club Maccabi Tel-Aviv, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, until the lockout ends.
Last season, his first with the Nets after leaving the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency, Farmar made 73 appearances, including 18 starts. He averaged career-highs in minutes (24.6), points (9.6), rebounds (2.4), and assists (5.0). He's a quality backup but sub-par starter, which is just fine with New Jersey, as it boasts Deron Williams, an All-Star and Olympic gold-medalist.
Farmar is the third Net to take his talents to Europe during the lockout. Sasha Vujacic, his former Lakers teammate, signed a one-year contract with Turkish team Anadolu Efes in July. Notably, Williams signed with Besiktas, another Turkish team, and will report to its training camp unless the lockout ends prior to Sept. 1.
