In the 1996 – 1997 season, Utah Jazz competed in the NBA Finals, where Greg’s best statistical performance was in the fifth game where he scored 13 points, picked up 15 rebounds and three blocks.

Ostertag was a member of Utah Jazz until 2004, and was then signed as a free agent with the team of the Sacramento Kings. In 2004-2005 season, his average playing time was limited to 9 minutes and his statistics dropped to 1.6 points and three rebounds. The following season, he returned to the franchise of Utah in August 2005, in trades involving five teams and thirteen players; he played 60 regular season games, and averaged 2.4 points and 3.8 rebounds. He ended his career at the end of the season.

In all, Greg played 756 regular season games, with the statistics of 3,512 points, 4,145 rebounds, 443 assists and 1,293 blocks, which meant he averaged 4.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game.

Finally, in the personal life of Ostertag, he lives in Arizona with his wife Heidi and three children. He has a sister, Amy three years younger, who suffered diabetes from the age of six, and needed a transplant in 2002 as her kidneys had stopped working because of the illness. Ostertag, as the only brother, was the best candidate for a donation, which he did several months later. Although he became the first NBA player to give a kidney during his career, he is not the first player to have played in the league with a single kidney: Malik Rose had a kidney removed when he was a baby, Pete Chilcutt was born with only one kidney, and Sean Elliott played 87 games after receiving a kidney from his brother.
