The Lakers declined to offer a one-season qualifying offer worth $2.8 million to guard Jordan Farmar, making him an unrestricted free agent tonight at 9:01. Had they offered the deal to Farmar, he would have been a restricted free agent and they could have matched offers from other teams. Now he’s a walk-away free agent, which is what he wanted. It’s still possible, although unlikely, that he will re-sign with the Lakers. It’s more likely he will sign with another team as he hopes to find an enhanced role and a bigger paycheck.
