EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- First-round draft pick Jordan Farmar signed with the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.


Farmar, the 26th overall pick in last week's draft, passed up his final two years of eligibility at UCLA. The 6-foot-2 guard started all 66 games he played over two seasons for the Bruins, averaging 13.5 points and 5.2 assists.

The 19-year-old Farmar was a first-team All Pac-10 performer as a sophomore last season and helped UCLA advance to the NCAA championship game, where the Bruins lost to Florida.
