Cedi Osman leads Turkey past Germany with 20 points, 4 three-pointers
During a recent showdown with Germany, Osman dropped 20 points with four 3-pointers in 24 minutes of action, as he helped Turkey eke out a comprehensive 100-79 win in Hamburg, per Eurohoops. Osman, however, did not operate as a one-man wrecking crew, as he got a big hand from teammate Furkan Korkmaz, who dropped 23 points with six connections from downtown. Korkmaz is set to play for the Philadelphia 76ers in the coming season. Milwaukee Bucks forward Ersan Ilyasova, meanwhile, added 17 points, eight boards, and six dimes in 29 minutes of floor duty.
Following the departure of LeBron James, the Cavaliers are going to need everyone on the team to step up and contribute in trying to cover the huge void left by the four-time NBA MVP. Cedi Osman averaged just 3.9 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 0.7 assists in 11.0 minutes per game for Cleveland last season, but all those numbers are expected to experience an ample uptick in the 2018-19 NBA campaign.
