Jordan Farmar was waived by the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and reportedly will continue his professional basketball career in Turkey.

Farmar and four other players were traded to Atlanta last week from the Brooklyn Nets. The Jewish point guard reportedly asked the Hawks to buy out his contract, leaving the team room under the salary cap.

The Star Ledger of New Jersey reported that Farmar intends to play in Europe with Anadolu Efes of Istanbul, which reportedly has offered him a three-year contract.

Farmar played for Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel during last summer’s NBA lockout.
