The New Jersey Nets have acquired All-Star center Mehmet Okur from the New Jersey Nets in exchange for a second-round pick.
The move comes on the heels of the Nets learning that center Brook Lopez will be sidelined until at least February because of surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot.
Okur was limited to just 13 games last season because of a hip injury. He has averaged 13.7 points and 7.1 rebounds for his career.
The Jazz had a full frontcourt with Al Jefferson starting at center and having drafted big man Enes Kanter with the No. 3 pick in the NBA draft.
