The Los Angeles D-Fenders of the NBA Development League have been assigned guard Jordan Farmar from their NBA affiliate, the Los Angeles Lakers. Farmar is the 24th NBA player assigned to a D-League affiliate this season.
Farmar, 6-2, 180, has played in 62 games this season for the Lakers and has averaged 4.8 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game. He was selected by the Lakers with the 26th pick in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft.
?This is just what the Lakers had in mind for the D-Fenders. It?s a chance to give the young guys some extra playing time and we are happy to be a part of that,? said D-Fenders Head Coach Dan Panaggio. ?We hope Jordan will bring some leadership and added defensive punch to the D-Fenders line up.?
Farmar will wear jersey #2.
