Deron Williams already signed a deal to play overseas, and now it looks like the Nets’ second string point guard will do the same: Jordan Farmar has agreed to terms with Israel’s Maccabi Tel Aviv.
The Nets’ player representative to the union, Farmar had been in discussions with Maccabi Tel Aviv and fellow Israeli club Maccabi Haifa. The exact details of the contract are unknown, but the deal includes the standard lockout termination clause.
I’m glad that Farmar will get extra work on his game and a chance to stay in shape. Billy Hunter assuredly sees this as another victory.
