Jordan Farmar to leave NBA and play in Europe
Farmar had the option of becoming a free agent this summer or exercise his player option to play for the Nets one more year, at $4.25 million. Farmar decided on June 30 -- the day he had to make the decision and hours before free agency began -- to pick the option up. But two days later, he was included in the trade to Atlanta, along with Anthony Morrow, Johan Petro and Jordan Williams. With a three-year offer from Efes on the table, Farmar asked to be bought out, and the Hawks were willing to accommodate him.
