3) Mehmet Okur
Mehmet Okur was one of the best shooting big men in the NBA and one of the prototypes (along with Dirk Nowitzki) for the kind of big man that is now en vogue in the league.
He was also an integral component of Utah’s success during the mid-to-late 2000s. Along with Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer, the “Money Man” helped carry the Jazz band to levels not seen since the glory days of Stockton-to-Malone.
During his tenure with the Jazz, he was one of the game’s elite offensive players from the frontcourt and boasted an impressive resume of clutch moments befitting his Money nickname. He was ultimately recognized with an All-Star selection in 2007.
In retirement, Okur served as a spokesman, team ambassador and special consultant for the Jazz before joining former Jazzman Earl Watson’s coaching staff with the Phoenix Suns.
Utah Jazz Stats: 474 GP, 15.3 points, 38.1 percent from three, 7.6 rebounds and no retired jersey (what?).
