Cavaliers sign Turkish forward Cedi Osman to three-year deal

Cavaliers sign Turkish forward Cedi Osman to three-year deal

A team source said he could become a player in the mold of Trevor Ariza.

"Osman is a 6'8" forward who will most likely be a bench player.

Osman was selected with the No. 31 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. This move was expected by the Cavaliers, especially after they failed to sign Jamal Crawford [VIDEO].

Osman spent time with the Cavs recently during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon reported.

After beating the Warriors 4-3 in the finals, they claimed the National Basketball Association title for the first and so far only time in 2016. The 6-8 Osman is known for his defense.

Given the Cavs' reputation as a three-point shooting team, his shooting percentage of 35.6 percent from long-range could allow him to bolster the team's frontcourt. While remembering that the three-point line in the Euroleague is 19 inches closer to the rim, if Osman can show any semblance of the offensive player he was in Turkey, at the very least he'll be a solid three-and-D player. He also shot career-best from the field that year with 44.1 percent success rate. He joins Kyle Korver, Jeff Green and Jose Calderon as free agent signings for the Cavs this summer.

The Cavaliers finally appear to have added some youth for next season.

With that said, Osman will make around $2.8 million annually and the Cavs have $2.4 million left in their taxpayer's MLE.
