Jordan Farmar To Sign 3-Year Deal With Turkish Team, According To Report

Former Brooklyn Nets point guard Jordan Farmar will be bought out of his NBA contract and sign a three-year deal to play in Turkey, according to Colin Stephenson of the Newark Star-Ledger. Farmar will end up playing for Anadolu Efes, a club team in Istanbul.

Farmar was traded from the Nets to the Atlanta Hawks as part of the Joe Johnson trade, but he asked to be bought out of his $4.25 million contract. The Hawks will pay Farmer just over $1.5 million of his salary next year. In addition to that, Farmar is expected to make $10.5 million over three years on his contract for his new Turkish club team.

Farmar had by far his best season as a pro last year, averaging just over 10 points per game while hitting nearly 47 percent of his shots in a bench role for the Nets. Coach Avery Johnson used him to back up Deron Williams, but he also played alongside Williams at times.
