NBA free agency 2014: Jordan Farmar agrees to 2-year deal with Clippers, according to reports

Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

The Lakers watched another piece of their backcourt from last season sign elsewhere, though he wont be changing cities.

Free agent point guard Jordan Farmar has agreed to a two-year, $4.2 million contract with the Los Angeles Clippersreports Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times. The Clippers will use their bi-annual exception to sign the unrestricted free agent, replacing backup point guard Darren Collison who signed a multi-year deal with the Sacramento Kings.

The Clippers also tacked on a player option for the second year of his contract.

Farmar's signing with the Clippers is a blow to the Los Angeles Lakers, who are thin at point guard. Steve Nash's health has been an issue over the past two seasons, and Kendall Marshall is still a question mark at best as a long-term solution at the position.

The Lakers have not made any signings, waiting for both LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony to make their decisions before making roster moves. Farmar had a solid season while healthy in his return to the NBA, averaging 10.1 points and 4.9 assists per game while shooting 43.8 percent from beyond the arc.

Farmar played in just 41 games, dealing with hamstring issues through the majority of the second half of the season.
