Hold or Fold: 3 Rumored San Antonio Spurs trade candidates

Hold: Cedi Osman

Sometimes, it feels like Osman was born to wear the Silver and Black. The veteran forward makes timely cuts, delivers extra passes, hustles to loose balls, and sprints in transition. He has also exhibited a smooth stroke from beyond the arc, nailing 41.3% of his three-pointers this season. Though he looked like a long shot to earn a roster spot this summer, his inexhaustible motor has turned him into a staple of the second unit.

The Spurs will likely receive several phone calls from title contenders who are curious about his availability near the trade deadline. Regardless, they should send those teams straight to voice mail unless the deal includes at least one first-rounder. San Antonio is short on leadership and experience as things stand, and the youngest roster in the NBA could use a steadying presence for when matchups start getting out of hand.
