The New Jersey Nets acted quickly in light of the terrible Brook Lopez news this afternoon, swinging a deal for Mehmet Okur. Per the Salt Lake Tribune: “Utah Jazz trade Mehmet Okur for future second-round pick and trade exception. Mehmet Okur completely caught off guard by trade. Okur came into camp 100 percent and wowed Jazz with his comeback. Clearly contributed toward his trade. Old era Jazz — D-Will, Boozer, Okur — completely gone. Utah continues to rebuild while going young; clear sign Jazz believe in Kanter.”
