Okur Signs With Turk Telekom Ankara
Mehmet Okur has signed with Turk Telekom Ankara.
Okur's contract will allow him to return to the Jazz when the lockout is over.
Okur has recovered from his back issue and the left Achilles tendon injury that limited his court time last year.
"He's healthy enough to play now," Fleisher said.
Okur will immediately begin practicing and playing with Turk Telekom Ankara.
"The driving force behind this is him not having played for a while and wanting to get back on court and finding a rhythm," Fleisher said. "He wants to get ready sooner than later so he'll be in a better position to contribute immediately (in the NBA)."
