According to B.A. Turner of the Los Angeles Times, the parting of ways was agreed upon by both sides.
“I was surprised that it got to this, but yet it became mutual,” he said.
This could be rhetoric of the you-can’t-fire-me-I-quit variety, but there could be something to Farmar’s assertion. After choosing to sign with the Clips over the offseason, he’s seen his minutes per game dip to a career-low 14.7. With the Los Angeles Lakers last season, he endured one of the worst seasons in that franchise’s history, yet showed he could still be a viable rotation player in his age-27 season.
For whatever reason, things didn’t work out across the hall.
After averaging just 4.6 points and 1.9 assists, it was clear that Farmar wasn’t a fit. The Clippers’ bench has struggled mightily and is one of the primary reasons the team hasn’t been able to dominate in the West this season as many expected.
