Some of the competition was televised on ESPNU.
Farmar generally looked okay, playing smart and under control, while shooting the ball poorly. In fact, Farmar made just one short jumper from the baseline, while missing three three-point attempts. It appeared that Farmar was straining to shoot from the NBA three-point range. Farmar generally made good decisions, ran the pick-and-roll pretty well, and was adequate defensively – possibly just getting beat once. It appeared that he's working hard on defense, staying low and in a stance. On offense, he didn't appear to have more than one or two turnovers, while not trying to do too much and playing under control. The outside jumpers he took were open looks. Farmar did make a little runner with about 30 seconds left in his game that proved to be the game winner, a left-hand scoop shot in the lane. He had his man off-balance and he had the momentum, but besides that drive, he appeared to not be able to take a defender off the dribble, relying on ball screens. Pittsburgh guard Carl Krauser tried to get physical with Farmar a couple of times but it didn't seem to bother him.
Farmar finished with 8 points, on three-of-seven shooting, with three assists, three rebounds, one steal and two turnovers. Overall, it was a performance that you would think didn't wow anyone, but was solid.
Sources at the camp said they actually believed he showed better than how he looked on television.
Another NBA source said he thought that potential point guard draftees Darius Washington and C.J. Watson fared better than Farmar. Coming into the camp, Farmar was generally considered to be a higher pick than both Washington and Watson.
The word is still that New Jersey with the #22 and #23 picks, and Sacramento with the #19 pick, are the two teams that are most serious about drafting Farmar.
Sources close to the situation have indicated pretty strongly that Farmar will only stay in the draft if he receives a first-round guarantee from a team.
The deadline for an underclassman to pull his name out of the draft is June 18th. The Draft is June 28th.
ESPNU will have more coverage of the NBA Draft camp today, starting at 11:00 a.m. PST. Farmar's team, which is Team One, is thought to be in the first game that could be aired on that telecast. The camp continues through Saturday, but ESPNU's coverage of the camp games concludes today.
