Since signing Love to that massive four-year extension, the Cavs’ plan centered on Sexton, Love, the unknown 2019 draft pick, Cedi Osman and Larry Nance Jr. Nothing has changed. Yet. They would need to be overwhelmed by an offer, getting a package that helps in both the short and long term. The No. 4 pick, hypothetically, would be a fine start. Only the Cavs would ask for more. Will a team be desperate enough to get Cleveland to change its stance? Given Love’s injury history, age and contract, it’s hard to see that happening.
While Love hasn’t committed to play for Team USA in the FIBA World Cup, wanting to give it more thought following a difficult season, Osman will be one of the leaders for the Turkish National Team. Both Turkey and the United States were placed into Group E, along with the Czech Republic and Japan, for the 32-team tournament that starts on Aug. 31. “It’s great. I’m really excited about it,” Osman told cleveland.com about playing Team USA early in the group stage.
According to Osman, there are high hopes this year for Turkey, which also rosters NBA players Ersan Ilyasova and Furkan Korkmaz. Former Cavalier Semih Erden and Maccabi Tel Aviv’s Scottie Wilbekin are also expected to play, rounding out the squad’s top five. “I feel like we can go further (than in the past),” said Osman, who helped Turkey advance to the quarterfinals before losing to Lithuania in 2014. “I feel we can go top 8. If we finish second in group we are going to play against probably Greece or Brazil in the next round. It will be really tough and we will see. We will try to do something big and it won’t be easy. It’s pretty exciting.”
