Farmar returns to rebuilding Maccabi Tel Aviv

Four years after a brief two-month stint in Israel, Jordan Farmar is returning to Maccabi Tel Aviv.

The 28-year-old American Jew became the latest and biggest signing of the ongoing overhaul of the roster on Monday, joining Taylor Rochestie, Trevor Mbakwe and Dagan Yivzori, who have all signed for the yellow-and-blue since its shock defeat to Hapoel Eilat in the BSL semifinals last month.

Farmar, who was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 26th pick overall in the 2006 NBA draft, first joined Maccabi during the NBA lockout in 2011, averaging 14.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists in the Euroleague. He left after just two months in late November following the end of the lockout.
