Mehmet Okur ?

Brian T. Smith: Ex-#UtahJazz center Mehmet Okur at 95-percent health and wants to continue #NBA career. No signing imminent, but could ink deal with a team after the season starts. Understands he's a big who can drill 3s, and there's always a need for that in playoffs. Twitter

Not a good defender and health conditions are still not clear. Maybe for veteran minimum it's OK, but he will be looking for more.

like the article said, he might be a consideration for a team come mid point in the season when someone gets injured or someone realizes they could use another big who can score... would he be an upgrade over bonner? have not seen him play a ton... I know he could never be on bonners level as a hoagie critic but what about on the court?

Yeah, you don't want to bank on that guy to be available for 100 games.

+1

we need someone to spot Duncan minutes, not to share days off b/c of health with him

I'd still take him over most other bigs left out there. BANG inside and BANG from the three point line.

Draw those opposing centers out to the perimeter.

Do it!

Hasn't he made noises that he doesn't want to sign for the vet minimum? And I thought I read somewhere that he already has offers from Turkey where he can earn more and play less...

But hey, you can never have too many bigs whose only quality is they can stand still at the 3-point line chunk up shots and watch as the guy they're defending blows past them for easy layups and the other team rebounds the long miss.

Would of been good to have a few seasons ago when he had something left but he don't have it anymore.
