Cedi Osman Rumors
Anadolu Efes’ young star Cedi Osman made important statements to ajansbasketbol.com. “I’m moving in line with my targets. Hopefully I’ll be selected from a very good place. If I don’t selected the first round this is not a problem for me. Because I’ll stay here for two more years. I want to go to the NBA in a ready way . That’s what matters. I’ve always dreamed of playing in the NBA.” he said about the NBA Draft.
At 6-foot-7, Osman certainly would be an intriguing point-forward prospect, but it will take time. But he does play for one of the best teams in Europe, he has been well-coached and he has gotten minutes. “I think people over in Europe have a different idea on positioning than we do over here,” a veteran scout said. “They think if a guy’s big enough and he can bring the ball over and initiate the offense, than he can play the point. And that’s not how we think over here. Osman is a pretty good passer, but he plays upright. They don’t play a lot of screen and roll over there, and the guard doesn’t have to make more point guard decisions. I see him more as a two who is a pretty good passer.”
