Mehmet will stay in Utah for close to $21 million over two seasons: “More money, and more seasons in Utah, are in the bag for Mehmet Okur. The Jazz on Thursday night said they have agreed to a two-contract extension with Okur, their starting center and an NBA All-Star in 2007. The extension begins with the 2010-11 season and runs through the 2011-12 season, team spokesman Jonathan Rinehart said.”
