Cedi Osman’s usage rating continues to climb from earlier this season, when he stood beyond the arc, randomly waiting for passes to come his way.
Osman is averaging 12.6 points to go with 6.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists over the last three games. This is after John Beilein and his staff reevaluated their offensive plan, making a commitment to get their playmakers more touches throughout. Beilein saw Osman’s distributing potential while the youngster was playing for the Turkish National Team this summer, but with Kevin Love healthy, the offense was always going to revolve around him. The sample size is still too small but the Cavs seem to believe in their Turkish forward and it remains to be seen whether he can continue improving.
