Farmar Signs With Maccabi Tel Aviv

Jordan Farmar has reached an agreement with Maccabi Tel Aviv on a one-year contract.

The deal includes a termination provision in the event the lockout is settled and the NBA season resumes.

"I'm very excited to play in Tel Aviv,'' Farmar told the Star-Ledger. "I went there as a little kid. My stepdad is from Tel Aviv. I watched Tel Aviv play basketball and football -- soccer.''

Farmar will initially count as an American on Tel Aviv's roster. Israeli teams are allowed to dress only four foreign players for league games. Farmar, though, said he will apply for Israeli citizenship "to give (the team) more flexibility, or whatever.''

Farmar had also been in negotiations with Maccabi Haifa.
