Ex-Laker and UCLA point guard Jordan Farmar was waived by the Atlanta Hawks after being acquired in the blockbuster trade of Joe Johnson to the Brooklyn Nets.

The New Jersey Star Ledger is reporting that Farmar will be bought out of his contract for $1.5 million and after clearing waivers will make the long flight across the pond to play for Anadoula Efes of Istanbul, Turkey.

This isn't Farmar's first foray overseas as the guard played with in Tel Aviv, Israel last year while the NBA was locked out. Anadoula Efes is believed to have offered Farmer a three-year, $10.5 million deal. Farmar will be reunited with former Laker's teammate Sasha Vujacic.

Farmar averaged a career high 10.4 points a game in the lockout shortened season, starting five games. But with the Brooklyn Nets resigning Deron Williams, Farmar was destined to a career as a back-up unless Williams succumbed to injury.
