NBA Rumors: Brooklyn Nets Guard Jordan Farmar Intending To Opt Out Of Contract

NBA rumors are swirling as free agency is coming closer. The Brooklyn Nets have a lot to do this offseason besides from trying to re-sign point guard Deron Williams. The Nets will only have five players under contract coming into free agency. Room for improvement is always necessary.

The Nets will be without Jordan Farmar, who intends to opt out of his contract. Farmar has a playing option and if he picks it up it could be worth up to $4.25 million. Farmar is not expected to exceed what he could be owed next season on the open market. The Nets could also be on the way out with Farmar since they traded for Tyshawn Taylor at Thursday’s NBA Draft.

In May, Farmar expressed his disinterest in his role as a backup with the Nets and would like to become a starter. The Nets may just take a chance on a free agent point guard to either replace or backup Williams. The Nets could take a chance with Jason Kidd or Steve Nash who will both be looking for a new team.

The Nets’ first order of business will be taking care of the Williams business. Then the Nets will have to try and re-sign Gerald Wallace. Wallace will only stay with the Nets if Williams re-signs and it does look like Williams might come back to Brooklyn as it is the better situation for him.

Dwyane Wade Makes Brooklyn Nets Look Foolish

You gotta give the Brooklyn Nets credit: Despite looking incredibly foolish at times in front of their home crowd, they competed against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night and only lost by four points. That said, you wouldn't know it from this epic clip of Dwyane Wade dribbling circles around multiple Nets and ultimately hitting a stellar fadeaway jumper.

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.
