Spurs looking to trade Cedi Osman?

The Spurs are trying to figure out their future around No. 1 overall pick Victor Wembanyama and are likely to keep adding youth.Cedi Osman

That may leave some of the veteran players currently on the roster available for trade. And that list could include guard/forward Cedi Osman, acquired this past offseason via the Cavaliers.

Osman, 28, has come off the bench for a San Antonio team that has struggled to a miserable 5-30 record. He is averaging 7.5 points and shooting 36 percent on 3-pointers — and may be one of the players the Spurs are looking to move, per Andrew Lopez of ESPN.

“Forwards Cedi Osman and Doug McDermott don’t seem to figure into the long-term plans for the Spurs’ young core and could be valuable in trades next month,” Lopez wrote. “Osman, 28, is averaging 7.5 points in 18.4 minutes this season and shooting 36.0% from 3. The 32-year-old McDermott, who has some playoff experience with Chicago, Oklahoma City and Indiana over the years, is shooting a career-best 44.2% from distance and could help out any team right away.”

That’s not only true of McDermott, but also Osman, who could also help a contender and likely be had for cheap. If the Spurs could receive a younger player/draft pick(s) in return, then sure, Osman could have a new home soon.

The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 8.
