Farmar Completes Camp On Solid Note

By Bruin Basketball Report

On the final day of the NBA Pre-Draft camp in Orlando, Jordan Farmar helped lead his team to a 105-86 victory.

Farmar collected 6 points and 5 assists while playing primarily against Duke's Sean Dockery (Sr, 6'2) and Cal State Fullerton's Bobby Brown (Jr, 6'1).

His performance on Friday was similar to his earlier games - solid and steady but nothing spectacular.

Off-the-charts and spectacular play at the camp may be exactly what Farmar needed in order to dramatically improve his status in this year's draft.

Scouts have applauded Farmar for being the only projected first-round pick to attend the Orlando; yet from most reports, his performance at the camp has not changed his status as a middle to late first-round pick.

It's uncertain at this point whether Farmar is leaning towards remaining in the draft or returning to college for another year, although he has continually maintained a return to UCLA is a real possibility.

Farmar has been very deliberate with his approach to the process, and with over a week until the June 18 deadline to decide whether to remain or withdraw from the draft - it wouldn't be surprising if he spent the entire period to ponder his final decision.
