Lakers Sign Farmar To Contract

By Bruin Basketball Report

Former UCLA Bruin guard Jordan Farmar signed a rookie contract with the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.

Farmar, the 26th overall pick in last week's draft, passed up his final two years of eligibility at UCLA to enter the NBA draft.

The former local standout from Taft High School was the Bruins' second-leading scorer (13.5) and led the Pac-10 in assists (5.1) last season.

Although terms of the agreement were not released, the contract is estimated to be worth $1.9 million guarenteed over two-years with the team holding options for a third and fourth season.

Farmar is expected to play on the Lakers' Summer Pro League (SPL) team. Games run from July 8th through July 22.
