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.
