Farmar Close To Deal To Play In Israel; West Heads for Italy

Jeffrey Rosen, the American owner of Maccabi Haifa, says that his team is in "serious talks" with Jordan Farmar, saying that the Nets' back-up point guard "has expressed great interest to play for Maccabi Haifa." A deal would presumably include an out clause for when the NBA lockout ends.

The Nets beat Haifa 108-70 in their first exhibition game last season, with Farmar registering seven points and four rebounds. There are reports that Israel's top team, Maccabi Tel Aviv, is also interested in Farmar.  Meanwhile, another Nets guard, Mario West, has signed with Verona in the Italian League, according to Gazzetta della Sport, Italy's leading sports journal. West had been expected to get an invite to Nets' training camp after finishing last season on a couple of 10-day contracts.
