Nets Jordan Farmar going to Israel?

Maccabi Haifa of Israel's professional basketball league hopes to sign New Jersey Nets point guard Jordan Farmar if the ongoing lockout delays the start of the season.

The club's American owner, Jeffrey Rosen, issued a statement Tuesday saying that the club is "advancing in our negotiations" with Farmar, who just completed his first season with the Nets after winning two championships with the Los Angeles Lakers.

"We've been in serious talks with Jordan Farmar, who has expressed great interest to play for Maccabi Haifa," Rosen said. "We believe we are close to an agreement, but we have a few more hurdles to overcome to make it happen. We would love to have Jordan Farmar join Maccabi Haifa during the NBA lockout and we find his aspirations to play in Israel to be inspirational."

Israeli media reports say that Maccabi Haifa could face competition for Farmar from longtime Israeli club power Maccabi Tel Aviv, which perennially contends for the Euroleague title.

According to the rules established last week by FIBA, basketball's international governing body, Farmar would have to make a signed declaration that he intends to return to the Nets as soon as the lockout ends before being cleared to sign with any team abroad.

He's back in New Jersey, and there seems to be a problem between Avery and Farmar.
