Available in:

Mehmet Murat Okur (born May 26, 1979) is a Turkish retired professional basketball player. Listed at 6 ft 11 in (2.11 m), he played as a power forward and center. He was known for his terrific three point shooting and ability to space the floor. In his 7 seasons with the Utah Jazz, Mehmet Okur not only emerged as one of the premier shooting bigs in the NBA - he also became one of the league's most feared shooters in the clutch. From 2004-10 Okur displayed an uncanny knack for making big shots in pressure situations - earning him the nickname of "The Money Man" and "Memo is Money" amongst Jazz fans. On September 13, 2016, Okur was officially named a player development coach for the Phoenix Suns, thus becoming the first Turkish citizen to enter the coaching world in the NBA.
