Nets Reach Agreement with Farmar on 3-year, $12 Million Contract

The Nets announced Sunday night that they have reached an agreement with free agent point guard Jordan Farmar on a contract. The deal is reportedly worth $12 million over three years, with a player option for the third year. According to FanHouse, Farmar had been weighing multiple offers.

"Jordan will be an excellent complement to Devin in the backcourt," said Rod Thorn in the team's press release, also noting Farmar's "championship pedigree."  Over the past five years, Farmar's teams have won two NBA championships, lost in an NBA Finals and lost in an NCAA Championship Game.

Farmar, 6'2", started just two games in his four seasons with the Lakers, but averaged 19 minutes over the last three years and shot a career-high 38 percent from 3-point range last season. He's just 23 years old...but only the seventh youngest player on the roster.

Meanwhile, Dave D'Alessandro writes that the report of a contract offer to Udonis Haslem is "premature"  and that Haslem has a longer term, more lucrative offer from Dallas.
