Jazz Preparing For Draft With Idea Okur Might Not Return
Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor said Utah is preparing for the draft with the idea that veteran center Mehmet Okur might not return to action.
“What we’re planning on with Memo is to have him back and have him healthy,” O’Connor said. “How long it takes him to get back and into the flow of things, I don’t know. But you prepare for the worst, and you hope for the best.”
Okur is making progress during his rehabilitation and is expected to be in Salt Lake City by mid-June.
