Jordan Farmar said he has agreed to a three-year, $12-million deal with the New Jersey Nets, ending his ties with the Lakers.

Farmar said he can opt out of his deal after the second season.

Farmar spent all four of his NBA seasons with the Lakers and was a part of two championship teams.

"This is a great opportunity for me," Farmar said. "I'm looking forward to it."

Farmar said he'll get a chance to play behind starting Nets point guard Devin Harris and for a coach, Avery Johnson, who played point guard in the NBA.
