Published November 8, 2007

EL SEGUNDO – The Los Angeles Lakers have exercised a fourth year contract option on Andrew Bynum, it was announced today. Additionally, the team has also picked up the third year contract option on Jordan Farmar.

Bynum, an early entry candidate for the 2005 NBA Draft, became the youngest player in NBA history to be selected when the Lakers used their first round pick (10th overall) to acquire the 7’0” 285 lb. center. Appearing in all 82 games last season, Bynum averaged 7.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.56 blocks in 21.9 minutes.

Farmar, the Lakers first round draft pick (26th overall) in the 2006 NBA draft, played in 72 games last season, averaging 4.4 points and 1.9 assists in 15.1 minutes. The 6-2 guard who also played in three games last season for the team’s D-League affiliate, the D-Fenders, made NBA history when he became the first player in league history to see action in same-day D-League and NBA games on April 1.
