Jordan Farmar of the New Jersey Nets has signed to play for Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Farmar, a 6-foot-2 guard who is Jewish, will play for the Israeli champions as long as the NBA lockout continues, according to reports. He will be eligible to play as an Israeli, not counting against the limit of four foreign players per team in the Israeli league.
The Los Angeles native averaged 7.4 points and 2.7 assists last season, mostly coming off the bench for the Nets. Farmar had played four seasons for the L.A. Lakers before coming to New Jersey.
