2022 Fantasy Outlook
During the 2021-22 campaign, Osman played his fewest minutes (22.2) since his rookie season but still averaged over 10.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists for a fourth straight year. He was relatively efficient, shooting 43.2 percent from the field and 35.7 percent from three (5.4 attempts per game). Ultimately, Osman was a streaky bench performer but was capable of elevated numbers when an opportunity arose, posting nine games over 20 points, including a season-high 26 against Boston on Nov. 15. Osman faces strong competition for playing time. The Cavaliers emerged as playoff contenders last season and will boast a deep and talented roster led by Darius Garland, Donovan Mitchell, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen during the 2022-23 campaign. Nonetheless, Osman's ability to stretch the floor and do some secondary playmaking will likely remain extremely valuable for the Cavaliers, who leaned on their defense to earn a spot in the play-in tournament last year.

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Cedi Osman was born in 1995 in Ohrid, Macedonia. He has an older brother, Dzaner, who played professionally in Europe for six seasons. Osman started with Turkish club Anadolu Efes in 2007 as a youth member and eventually signed a pro contract with them in 2012. Osman has represented Turkey in several events, including winning gold at the 2013 FIBA U-18 European Championship and the 2014 FIBA U-20 European Championship. He was taken by the Timberwolves in the second round of the 2015 Draft but stayed in Europe until 2017 when he reached a deal with the Cavaliers, who had acquired his rights on draft night. You can follow him on Twitter and Instagram (@cediosman). Osman's basketball journey began in Turkey as a six-year-old. He played for KK Bosna's youth squads for six seasons. When he was 12 years old, he moved to Anadolu Efes, where he played for the club's junior teams. He was on loan to Perteveniyal for two seasons. He moved to the senior team in 2013-14. Osman started as a reserve but moved his way up the depth chart. In 2015-16, the 6-foot-8 forward averaged 7.9 points and 3.1 rebounds in 23 games. He became a starter the following season and provided 7.1 points and 2.8 rebounds in 35 games. Osman also represented Turkey in international competition. In the 2012 Albert Schweitzer Tournament, he helped his team win the bronze medal and was named Most Talented Player. Osman also helped Turkey win gold medals in the 2013 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship and 2014 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship. He made himself available for the 2015 NBA Draft and was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 31st overall pick.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Mentioned again in trade rumors
FCleveland Cavaliers
October 4, 2022
Osman's name has come up in recent trade rumors involving Jae Crowder, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
ANALYSIS
The Cavaliers were mentioned as a suitor for almost every big-name player available via trade this summer until they finally landed Donovan Mitchell. While Osman's name was usually involved, he didn't end up being part of the package sent to the Jazz. Cleveland could still be looking to trade for a starter at small forward, and Osman is the most logical candidate to trade places with Crowder. However, the team's proximity to the luxury tax threshold may not make a deal for the veteran forward feasible. As the Cavs' roster currently stands, Osman is one of the main competitors for that open starting spot, along with Caris LeVert and others.

2019
2018
Last season was a bit of a step backwards for Osman, whose 25.6 minutes per game were nearly five minutes fewer than the year prior. The 26-year-old was still decent, averaging 10.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game, but his three point percentage dropped from 38.3 percent to just 30.6 percent last season. It was clear that Cleveland preferred the upside in the younger Isaac Okoro over Osman, as the Turkish forward only started 26 games -- almost all of which came when the Cavs were dealing with multiple key injuries. While the Cavs did not add any wings to their arsenal during the offseason, it's still difficult to expect a major year out of Osman. As he enters his fifth season, Osman is clearly behind Okoro in the rotation, and he won't be prioritized over Cleveland's young core. The 6-foot-7 wing will need to find his touch on his three point shot in order to have any hope of being fantasy-relevant in most leagues.
Osman started every game he played in 2019-20, though his place as a permanent fixture in the starting five didn't translate to big fantasy value. Osman averaged 11.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.9 triples, shooting respectably from three (38.3 percent) but failing to maintain that same efficiency from the floor (43.7) and from the charity stripe (67.0). The Turkish forward saw his playing time and numbers decline across most statistical categories in his third season, likely due to the addition of rookies Kevin Porter and Darius Garland. Osman is considered the team's starting forward entering the 2020-21 season, though Kevin Porter played well in his debut campaign and should push Osman for minutes (and his starting job). The Cavaliers also selected forward Isaac Okoro with the fifth overall pick in the 2020 Draft. Osman should remain on the fantasy radar in deep drafts, but there's no reason to consider him in a standard league.
After averaging just 11.0 minutes in his first season with Cleveland in 2017-18, the former second-round pick logged 32.2 minutes per game in 2018-19. Osman's role grew tremendously in the wake of LeBron James' departure, and he could be in line for a sizeable workload in 2019-20 as the Cavaliers continue the rebuilding process. Osman averaged 13.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.7 threes on 42.7 percent from the floor and 34.8 percent from three. He finished with 13 games scoring at least 20 points, including a career-high 29 point outburst on Jan. 25. Osman is a solid all-around shooter who notched 16 games with at least three made three-pointers. The third-year pro from Turkey has likely done enough to earn the starting nod at small forward, but he'll face competition from rookies Dylan Windler and Kevin Porter. With Kevin Love healthy again, Osman's minutes at power forward will be limited. A decrease in minutes wouldn't be surprising given the return of Love and talented rookies on the roster, but Osman will likely maintain his strong role in the rotation.
A second-round pick by the Cavaliers in 2015, Osman finally made the move to the NBA last season after previously playing overseas. He spent the bulk of the year as a deep reserve on the wing behind the likes of J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver and Rodney Hood, averaging just 3.9 points and 2.0 rebounds across 11.0 minutes. He showed a solid three-point stroke at 36.8 percent, but also knocked down only 56.5 percent of his free-throws, which was disappointing overall. Osman did surprisingly log 12 starts when injuries struck the roster and averaged 9.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 23.4 minutes during those contests. He showed at least some potential upside as a scorer in those outings and he'll have a chance to build on that during the upcoming season. With LeBron James leaving for Los Angeles, Osman has a much clearer path to playing time on the wing. The re-signing of Rodney Hood should keep him in a bench role, but Osman is still likely to improve on his numbers quite a bit. Offseason additions David Nwaba and Sam Dekker could also push for time at small forward, so Osman will need to have a strong camp in order to fend those guys off and significantly up his workload. He'll only be someone to monitor in deeper leagues.
