Nets acquire Okur

Him and Deron had some good chemistry.

The Utah Jazz have traded all-star centre Mehmet Okur to the New jersey Nets in exchange for a future second-round draft pick.

The six-foot-11 Okur is in his 10th year.

The Nets needed another big man after learning Brook Lopez was out until at least February from surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot.

Utah had an abundance of big men. The Jazz drafted Enes Kanter No. 3 overall this summer and have watched former No. 3 overall pick Derrick Favours blossom.

That's an amazing pick up for NJ. Didn't have to give up much at all.
