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.
