Blog Photo - Jordan Farmar Re-Signs With the LakersFormer Los Angeles Lakers point guard, Jordan Farmar, will be returning to the purple and gold for the 2013-2014 season. Farmar played in Turkey this past season due to the lock-out and was unable to return to the NBA this past season. However, the former UCLA standout and back-up NBA point-guard agreed to a one-year minimum deal, taking a significant pay-cut from what he could have received from his Turkish team. 
 
"They knew about my deal overseas and really didn't push it earlier because they didn't think I'd be willing to give up that guaranteed money I had over there," Farmar said.  "I wanted to be back in the NBA, but more importantly, back with the Lakers. This is the only situation I would have taken a minimum deal with.  I've been a Laker since I was born.  I grew up a Laker fan, so regardless of where I am or who I'm playing for, or what I'm doing in life, I'm always going to stay connected to what's going on here [in Los Angeles]."
