The Cleveland Cavaliers may have a new face on the roster next season as Cedi Osman has decided to take his NBA out and is currently enroute to Cleveland.
The news of this development was first reported by David Pick:

Osman was the 31st overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft and has spent the last two seasons playing in Turkey for Adunlu Efes. He has played professionally for the last four season and has career Euroleage averages of 6.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, 0.9 assists in an average of 18.2 minutes per game.
It’s unclear is Osman will end up playing for the Cavs, or be involved in a trade to improve the team. The Cavs have few positive assets to include in a trade at the moment. With Osman being a well regarded prospect with no cap hit for his rights, he could be included in a deal to help sweeten the pot.
Osman was well regarded by David Griffin, but with no front office currently in place it’s hard to say exactly what his future with the team will be.
