EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Lakers have signed free agent guard Jordan Farmar, who returns to the team that drafted him in 2006 and that he helped win back-to-back NBA titles.

Farmar played last season in Turkey, where he averaged 13.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists for Anadolu Efes Istanbul in the Euroleague.

Farmer spent his first four NBA seasons with the Lakers, averaging 6.9 points and 2.1 assists during 301 career games. He was part of their 2009 and 2010 NBA title teams. He was taken as the 26th overall pick out of UCLA.

Farmer, a Los Angeles native, played two seasons with the now-Brooklyn Nets after leaving the Lakers.
