Source: Clippers to buy out Jordan Farmar's contract

The Los Angeles Clippers are in the final stages of working out a buyout of point guard Jordan Farmar that could be completed on Thursday night, a source told Yahoo Sports.

The Clippers found Farmar expendable after acquiring guard Austin Rivers, the son of Clippers president and coach Doc Rivers, from the Boston Celtics in a three-team trade on Thursday. Farmer averaged 4.6 points on 38.6 percent shooting from field and 1.9 assists in 14.7 minutes per game for the Clippers this season.

Farmar signed a two-year, $4.2 million deal last offseason with a player option in the second season paying $2.1 million.

The waiving of Farmar will open a roster spot for the Clippers. The Clippers have shown interest in point guard Nate Robinson, a source told Yahoo Sports. The Miami Heat, Washington Wizards and the Cleveland Cavaliers have also expressed interest in Robinson, who was traded from the Denver Nuggets to the Boston Celtics this week before reaching a buyout with the Celtics.

Farmar could also benefit from an NBA free-agent market lacking veteran point guards.
