As most of you know, the Cavs have been looking for a viable backup point guard to run their offense off the bench. Quite a few names have surfaced with regards to whom the champs might be interested in, including Mario Chalmers, Norris Cole, Jameer Nelson, and Jarrett Jack.

Farmar, 30, will be among the players visiting Cleveland today for a workout. The former UCLA stand-out and 26th overall selection in the 2006 NBA Draft last played for the Sacramento Kings, but was waived on November 7th. The 6’2″ point guard has career averages of 7.7 points and 2.9 assists over the course of his 504 regular season games. The Cavs are likely interested in Farmar’s ball-handling and three-point shooting skills (37.4% career 3PFG).
As it was reported yesterday, Kirk Hinrich, Lance Stephenson, and Chalmers will also be in attendance at today’s workout. According to multiple sources, Baron Davis is reportedly interested in participating today as well. Who the Cavs might choose can only be speculated on at this point, but it’s safe to say the ball is rolling.
