Fenerbahce agrees terms with Okur (Happy April Fool’s Day)
Fenerbahce Ulker agreed terms with Turkish International Mehmet Okur until the end of the season. The club has an option for an additional year and the player an NBA opt-out.
Mehmet Okur started the season with the New Jersey Nets, but didn’t play any games due to a lower back injury. As he was nearing recovery he was part of the Gerald Wallace trade that sent him to Portland were he was waved after a couple of days.
Okur (a Yalova native) has tweeted about Fenerbahce numerous times, will finally play for the team of his heart. Reportedly he will be earning $50.000 per month until the end of the season.
Editor’s notice: this was a prank of course.
