LA Clippers waive guard Jordan Farmar

January 16, 2015

The Los Angeles Clippers' acquisition of Austin Rivers earlier this week has improved the team's depth, but also has rendered another player on the roster expendable, as the club announced today that it has waived point guard Jordan Farmar.

The Clippers signed Farmar to a two year deal this offseason with the hope that he could fill Darren Collison's role as the backup point guard to All-Star Chris Paul.  Collison signed a free agent deal with Sacramento this past offseason.

However, Farmar and coach Doc Rivers never quite saw eye-to-eye this year.  Farmar's minutes and performance were inconsistent, ultimately prompting Rivers, in his dual GM capacity, to seek a trade for his son Austin.

Farmar is a veteran point guard with good athleticism and three-point range who will likely catch on with another team, but he lacks the size and upside of Rivers.

Farmar, 28, leaves the Clippers after appearing in 36 games this season with averages of 4.6 points, 1.9 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game. He has career averages of 7.7 points, 2.9 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 490 games (30 starts) in 19.4 minutes.
