Osman’s playing time has become as unpredictable as his jumper. “It’s not easy,” Bickerstaff admitted when asked about Osman’s ever-changing role. “But we were talking pregame about how guys want to be here and be a part of it. When your time is called, you’ve just gotta give your best and Cedi is another example of that. He wants to be a part of this team. He wants to help. He wants to be on the floor. When his number is called, he’s gonna give us all he’s got and that’s a credit to him.

This Substack was the first to report that the Clippers are seeking to upgrade both their frontcourt and backcourt and before the deadline. I’ve heard two new names that the Clippers have been monitoring for those respective searches: Dallas’ Christian Wood and Minnesota’s D’Angelo Russell.
Sources say that Atlanta has joined Sacramento as a confirmed suitor for Philadelphia’s Matisse Thybulle. I don’t know that the Hawks will be the ultimate landing spot, but I’ve been advised that the prospect of Thybulle getting traded before Thursday’s buzzer is very real.
Drew Hill: Ja Morant on potentially playing Jaren Jackson Jr. in the ASG: “I’m definitely setting up an action where we can meet each other at the rim. We’re going to see if I’m really him, or maybe if he’s him. Either I’m dunking on him or he’s blocking it. If I miss it don’t count”
Drew Hill: Taylor Jenkins on Dillon Brooks walking the edge: “He and I talk about it. I won’t go into full detail because I want to keep that stuff private. I always tell him to keep that competitive edge, because that’s what makes him special. When there’s opportunity teach him and grow. We have great honest dialogue where he knows he can stretch us too far or he’s gotta do more.”
