3rd String Point Guard- Jordan Farmar
The Kings recently signed Jordan Farmar to add to their point guard depth. Farmar is a career reserve player. His most recent stint was playing for new Kings Head Coach Dave Joerger in Memphis last season. That leads me to believe that Kings signed Farmar with the intent of him playing a role this season. Farmar should have a familiarity with Coach Joerger’s system. Below is a video of one of Farmar’s best games from last season, so you can get a look at what he is going to bring to Sacramento.
Farmar should begin the season as the backup point guard and then slide to number three when Collison returns from suspension. I expect Farmar to play if he is healthy because he brings experience and leadership to Sacramento. Farmar will not produce spectacular numbers on the court, but is part of the veteran crop the Kings hope brings cohesion to the locker room. I wrote an entire article about why Farmar was a good fit for the Kings here if you care to read more about it (Note: I wrote the article before he signed with the Kings).
