Sources: Cedi Osman, Cavaliers in ‘initial talks’ on Extension

[Cedi] Osman is extension eligible and there have been conversations between [Cleveland] Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman and Osman’s agent Jeff Schwartz about the possibility prior to the season. But those are just initial talks and the Cavs have allowed Osman to focus on his FIBA World Cup commitment, recognizing how much it means to Osman to play for his country. When that’s over, talks could pick back up.

Will something get done before Oct. 23? Possibly.

If the numbers discussed between the front office and Osman’s camp make sense over the next few weeks, the Cavs will lock up one of their long-term pieces. Otherwise, they will wait. Stay tuned.
