NBA free agency: Jordan Farmar, Lakers have mutual interest, according to report

Lisa Blumenfeld

The Lakers could bring back a familiar face at point guard.

The Los Angeles Lakers have waived Chris Duhon and allowed Darius Morris to become an unrestricted free agent, but may already have an option lined up to bring in a third point guard. Former Laker Jordan Farmer and the Lakers are said to have "mutual interest", according to a report from ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

Farmer last played for the New Jersey Nets during the 2011-2012 NBA season. He played in 39 games and averaged a career-high 10.9 points per game on 46 percent shooting overall, and 44 percent shooting from beyond the arc.

On July 12, 2012 Farmar signed with Anadolu Efes, a team in the Turkish Basketball League. In May Farmar indicated that he would be interested in return to the NBA and specifically stated that he would be open to a return to Los Angeles if the Lakers were in position to add him to their roster in an exclusive interview with Lucas Sheiner of Busta Sports.

Farmar was a lock in the Lakers' rotation after being drafted by L.A. with the No. 26 pick in the 2006 NBA draft. He played for Los Angeles from 2006-2010.
