Clippers to sign Farmar

The SportsXchange

The Los Angeles Clippers agreed to a two-year contract with guard Jordan Farmar on Sunday.

According to reports, Farmar will sign a two-year, $4.2 million deal that includes a player option in the second year.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers met with Farmar last week. The Clippers were looking to replace Darren Collison, who left for the Sacramento Kings.

"(The Clippers) came the hardest basketball-wise; it's probably the best situation situation out there for me," Farmar said. "I turned down more money elsewhere. I get to stay home in L.A. and play for a contender, which is important to me."

The 27-year-old Farmar averaged 10.1 points, 4.9 assists and 2.5 rebounds last season for the Los Angeles Lakers. He missed 41 games during the season because of various injuries.

"I'll always have a special place for the Lakers in my heart, but it wasn't in the cards for me this time," Farmar said.
