Farmar played in Israel earlier this season, before being bought out/cut by his team, and then signed with the Grizzlies on a ten-day contract on March 21st. He played in 12 games (starting in ten of those games thanks to the injuries of Mike Conley and Mario Chalmers), averaging nine points and three assists. After being signed for the remainder of the season, Farmar started in all four playoff games, averaging nearly seven points and four assists per game.
But here is all you really need to know about Jordan Farmar.
Jordan Farmar just made the dumbest vet play I've ever seen. Went for layup down 6 with 13 secs left.— Matt Hrdlicka (@theRealHrdlicka) March 31, 2016
I could never be a GM because I'd want to cut Farmar for that specific play. Just padding stats instead of trying to win.— Matt Hrdlicka (@theRealHrdlicka) March 31, 2016
Can someone explain to me why Farmar was signed for the rest of the year instead of a 2nd 10 day?— Matt Hrdlicka (@theRealHrdlicka) March 31, 2016
Grade: D for dreadful

But, it is the end of a very long season, and I am always willing to forgive and move on. Never mind the sheer amount of potential young players that were cut this season to make room for him on the roster. Never mind that he often times played like a seven foot tall traffic cone. Never mind former head coach Dave Joerger's Fatal Attraction-esque love and affection for Hollins.
So goodbye to Booty Call, the greatest nickname in the history of Memphis Grizzlies basketball.
