As expected, Jordan Farmar‘s latest stint with the Kings came to an end today after less than a week. As James Ham of CSNBayArea.com tweets, Sacramento has waived Farmar, clearing the way for Darren Collison to come off the suspended list and rejoin the team. The Kings confirmed Farmar’s release in an announcement on their website.
The Kings were allowed to temporarily carry a 16th player on their 15-man roster after moving Collison to the suspended list for the last three games of his eight-game ban, as we detailed last Wednesday. However, since the team played its eighth game of the season on Sunday, a roster move was required today in order to get back down to 15 players.
Farmar, who turns 30 later this month, appeared in two games for the Kings over the last few days, averaging 6.0 PPG and 4.5 APG in 17.5 minutes per contest. The veteran point guard signed a non-guaranteed contract with Sacramento, so the team will only be charged a prorated portion of the minimum salary for the few days he was on the roster.
Farmar will return to the free agent list, assuming he clears waivers on Wednesday.
