It’s probably not a guarantee that he makes the final roster, but the same can be said for Ty Lawson and Isaiah Cousins at this point. Farmar does seem like the safest option, as he doesn’t come with Lawson’s off-court issues or, quite frankly, many of his on-court ones either. Cousins didn’t have a great showing in Summer League and seems likely to be held out of the rotation at this point.
Garrett Temple looks to be the backup point guard right now, and is more than capable of filling that role, so the third spot won’t be terribly important. That said, the third player will likely be asked to back him up while Darren Collison serves his suspension, so they will play some decent minutes early on.
If nothing else, the Farmar signing adds more competition for the third point guard spot, which is never a bad thing.
