Netlinked 11/9/12: Mehmet Okur, A Net For 17 Games, Retires

Mehmet Okur, a 6'11'' Turkish center who spent last season with the Nets, has retired from the NBA after playing in the league for 10 season. Okur played the first two seasons of his career in Detroit with the Pistons, then signed with the Jazz, where he played nine seasons, and then was traded to the Nets just before last season began. Over the length of his career, Okur averaged 13.5 points per game and 7.0 rebounds per game but was more known for his perimeter shooting skill than anything else.
