With NBA free agency kicking off, Jordan Farmar exercised his $4.25 million dollar player option to stay with the Brooklyn Nets.
Farmar is coming off a season in which he played in 39 games, starting 5 of them. He averaged 21.3 minutes a game and scored 10.4 points and 3.3 assists. Farmar shot 46 % from the field and 44% from 3 point land.
The Nets are beginning to have a log jam at the guard position. Farmar joins Marshon Brooks and Anthony Marrow under contract in addition to the drafting of Tyshawn Taylor in the 2nd round of Thursday's draft.
With the hope that Deron Williams is coming back and the talk of Jason Kidd following where ever Williams decides to go, it would appear that Farmar maybe used in a trade. The Nets have been linked in conversations for Joe Johnson, Dwight Howard, and Luis Scola to try and give Williams some help.
