Former LAL guard J. Farmar and the Lakers have been in touch. Source characterized it as "mutual interest," but depends on other dominoes

Absolutely. Next year is a throw away year. Pump up his stats and sell high on him with his fools gold trade value under MDA's system.

Dwight signs: trade away Blake to sign cheaper options...

I would like Farmar back. Hopefully he's grown a bit since he left, but he's fairly athletic, a decent passer... Not a great defender and not a great player but for the minimum a nice fit.

Ugghhhh..... I wish we would stop revisiting all these old Lakers and get some new blood in here. I was a big supporter of Farmar while he was here, but as I remember it, I wanted him gone by the end of his LA career. Do not want him back when scorers like Nate Robinson are still available probably on the cheap.

Again, I'm in total agreement. I'd take Farmar back for sure. Big upgrade to Morris and Duhon last year. Not sure I'd let go of Blake yet though considering how well he played last year. Just having a third guy who's younger and not injury prone, but is more seasoned than a guy like Morris, is a big improvement. Jordan can play for sure.

Well why not in Dan's system. So many here want Blake gone (I don't) but who else does anyone have better ideas about for backing up Nash, splitting time, whatever, if they get their way and Blake is gone? How about some names.... honest question. That would be a nice rotation to have the 3 of them.

Farmar>>>>>>>>>>>>>Morris. Is he great? No, but he did really, really well in NJ, he's been playing overseas, he's older, probably more mature, might even be better overall by now. I would absolutely take him for the minimum, there aren't a lot of better PG's out there for the minimum. When he was here he showed he can run the fast break, he can get to the hoop and make layups, he's got speed, and he actually showed he can hit big shots and isn't afraid of big moments. For example, he was one of our better players at hitting buzzer beaters, even from deep. I don't remember his defense being that bad either, I remember a few times he gave Nash a really hard time, blocked his shot and stuff.

Because it's not smart to have two old injury prone PG's on the same team. We need to get younger and Blake has shown when given a bigger role, he's going to get injured.

We need someone to be able to play 20-25 minutes a game and play all 82 games, Blake can't do that. We need a younger, change of pace PG that can get his own shot and start in a pinch.

Looking back at this poor bench we had with Farmar, Sasha, Luke and what we have now. I'd love to have all 3 of them back here.
Offseason's finished for my long sleeping nights. NBA is back !!

I don't think Brooks and Beaubois are better at all... And I don't think I'd take the chance on Robinson. Bynum I think would be a better fit. Collison I'd love, but I don't think we'll come close to his price tag.

He's not a bad defensive player, but Blake is better.

My problem is his attitude. He always wanted a bigger role on the Lakers and he seemed to have an entitled attitude as if he deserved it. I can't stand when a player acts like they're better than they really are.

I'd love to bring in Will Bynum

Maybe he can wear 17 too so I won't have to get rid of my Andrew Bynum jersey :man11:

True, but that was years ago. He's had to experience playing for something other than a Championship AND playing overseas. If he's not humbled now, I don't know when he'll ever be.

Blake WAS better, we don't know how Farmar is now, guess a workout or camp invite might help us find out. Also, again, he's older, maybe a bigger role isn't as important to him anymore as being in the league at all and being in LA (home).

I don't think Brooks is better than Farmar, I don't think Beaubois is better than Farmar, I think Collison might be out of our price range but I would take him over Farmar, I don't think Will Bynum is better than Farmar, and I think for some reason we are never interested in Nate Robinson.

If he's interested in coming back to a team that he said he left because he didn't have a big enough role.....

Shouldn't that be an indication having a bigger role isn't necessarily a top priority anymore?
