Cleveland- It was reported this evening by Marc Stein of the New York Times that the Cleveland Cavaliers and forward Cedi Osman have agreed to an extension.
The new contract will kick in at the start of next season at $8.75 million and descend each season with the 2023-24 season being non-guaranteed.
The Cavaliers made Osman their starting small-forward last season after LeBron James departed for Los Angeles. In his first season as a starter, Osman averaged 13 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. He progressed throughout the season and earned himself a new contract.
With Cleveland resigning him now they will avoid seeing their starting small-forward hit restricted free agency next off-season.
