Veteran Utah Jazz center Memo Okur is reportedly negotiating to play this season in his native Turkey.
According to MixBasket, Fenerbahce Istanbul and Okur are discussing a one-year deal with an out-clause when the NBA lockout ends.
In nine NBA seasons, Okur has played 617 games. He has averaged 13.7 points per game and 7.1 rebounds. Last season, however, he missed all but 13 games after rupturing his Achilles tendon during the first round of the 2010 playoffs.
