EuroBasket 2017: Turkey vs. Russia open thread

New, comment

Ready to watch Cedi Osman do work?

EuroBasket 2017 kicks off its second day today and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ top two prospects are both in action.

Then, at 2 p.m, Cedi Osman and the Turkish National team takes on Russia. Due to Enes Kanter’s issues with government, the Turks aren’t at their best and Osman is likely to play a bit out of position at times. Against Russia, he’ll also square off against the likes of ex-Cavalier Timofey Mozgov and Alexey Shved. Osman is likely to defend Shved for most of Friday’s game.

All EuroBasket games are streaming live on ESPN3. Look for game coverage on FTS throughout the tournament. The full slate of today’s games is as follows:
