Jordan Farmar Considering Move to Israel

Deron Williams, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Sasha Vujacic are three Nets players set to play overseas, and it looks like one more might join them.

According to Colin Stephenson of the Star-Ledger, Jordan Farmar is seriously considering playing overseas, perhaps to Israel. He adds that there is nothing concrete in his decision to go or stay, but that there is obvious appeal that lies in Israel due to his stepfather’s roots there.

Originally, I was neutral about moves like this. Playing overseas gives these guys a chance to fight off rust and stay in shape during an otherwise idle offseason. However, after hearing about the rowdiness of fans in Turkey, and after reading Ric Bucher detail the dangers of overseas play, I’m not so sure anymore.
