4. Cedi Osman
Osman may not make it to the regular season opener in San Antonio. The 6’7 forward is a proven rotation player, but the Spurs acquired him as the third team in a trade this summer. San Antonio was eager to pick up the additional draft pick and grabbing a steady rotation piece was a bonus.
Osman is a career 35.3 percent 3-point shooter who has shown some playmaking ability and versatility. He is not producing monster stats but is a steady option in a 20 to 25-minute per-game role. The 6’7 forward maintained his minutes in the playoffs last season and could be a solid rotation piece off the bench.
The San Antonio Spurs have a roster crunch on the wing with Devin Vassell, Keldon Johnson, Jeremy Sochan, Malaki Branham, and Blake Wesley all searching for minutes. Osman would be taking time away from young talent in a rebuilding season in the Alamo. The 28-year-old will likely be on the move before the deadline and searching for a contender that gives him consistent minutes off the bench.
Cedi Osman is in the final year of his contract making $6.7 million. It is an easy salary to move whether it is part of a larger deal to upgrade their roster or an opposing team just looking to pick up a cheap rental.
