Cedi Osman posted a 22-point, 11-board double-double in Turkey's win over Slovenia at the World Cup Qualifiers.

Osman also added three triples, three assists and three steals in the victory, bringing Team Turkey to 6-2 overall at the FIBA tournament, which essentially guarantees them a spot at the 2019 FIBA World Cup. Osman played well at both Summer League and the World Cup Qualifiers, so hopefully, he'll be able to carry that momentum into camp. He's on the radar as a potential late-round pick with a ton of opportunity in front of him in Cleveland.

The Cavs have signed F JaCorey Williams to a training camp contract.

Williams was on the Cavs roster during training last September, but Cleveland waived him in order to make room for Dwyane Wade. Williams played 49 games in the G-League and averaged 15.4 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest. He's a longshot to make the Cavs opening night roster this season.

Cedi Osman played 37 minutes against Montenegro on Friday, scoring 18 points with six rebounds, two assists, three steals, and two 3-pointers.

The volume was there again for Osman with a team-high 15 attempts from the field while matching a team-high seven shots from the stripe. Osman only had a 15.7 usage rate last year, so it'll be interesting to see how he adjust to the NBA game with more shots going his way. If Vegas and FIBA are any indication, Osman is becoming a very attractive late-round fantasy pick.

Isaac Hamilton has signed an "exhibit 10" contract with the Cavs.

An exhibit 10 contract means Hamilton will get a $50,000 bonus if he's waived by the Cavs but signed to Cleveland's G-League affiliate. It is highly unlikely he makes the final 15-man roster.

The Cavs are signing G Kobi Simmons to a one-year contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Grizzlies waived Simmons back in August, making him an unrestricted free agent. He appeared in 32 games for Memphis last season, averaging 6.1 points, 2.1 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per contest. He has a decent chance to make the Cavs 15-man roster but is highly unlikely to have fantasy relevance this season.
Sep 14 - 9:24 AM

According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, Cedi Osman "will surely be a rotation player with a chance to start."

That meshes with just about all of the reports out of Cleveland. Osman is having himself a strong offseason with strong play in Vegas, working out with superstar forwards, and turning in a big game with the Turkish national team. He'll have gigantic shoes to fill as the SF, but the upside is there as a late-round flier.
Sep 12 - 3:07 PM

Cedi Osman put up 24 points and two 3-pointers in Turkey's win over the Czech Republic at the World Cup Qualifiers.

Osman has been playing well this summer, and he'll be competing for a starting spot at camp. There's a ton of minutes to fill with LeBron James no longer around and Osman could be one of the primary beneficiaries here. He's on the radar as a potential late-round target on draft day.
Sep 9 - 5:40 PM

Rodney Hood will reportedly sign a one-year, $3.4 million qualifying offer with the Cavs.

Hood didn't receive much interest on the open market after a disappointing 2017-18 campaign, but he could certainly have a bounce-back year playing a key role on a Cavs team that could really use some extra offense. If he emerges as a starter after training camp, he'll be someone to consider taking a flier on towards the final few rounds.
Sep 9 - 2:22 PM

David Nwaba signed his one-year contract with the Cavs on Saturday.

Nwaba reportedly agreed to the deal back in August, but it's now official. He'll compete for minutes at SG and on the wing with Cedi Osman, Kyle Korver, J.R. Smith and Jordan Clarkson.
Sep 8 - 12:02 PM

Cedi Osman scored 20 points with four 3-pointers against Germany on Friday.

It's been a head-turning summer for Osman, who was working out with Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant and LeBron James earlier this summer. He's in line to see a massive increase to his playing time, and he could even get the starting nod. If he can improve his shooting, Osman could have a a breakout year.
Sep 7 - 7:03 PM

Free agent G Kobi Simmons worked out for the Cavs on Thursday, along with Tyler Ulis, Brandon Paul and Rodney Purvis.

It's the first time we've heard about Simmons working out for the Cavs, who have some roster spots to fill as they head into training camp. Even if he does earn an invite from Cleveland, though, Simmons has an uphill fight for fantasy relevance.
Sep 6 - 6:07 PM

The Suns are reportedly not interested in George Hill.

Phoenix needs a starting caliber point guard after trading away Brandon Knight, but they have no interest in acquiring Hill and the $37 million that's owed to him over the next two years. The Suns have put out feelers on Damian Lillard, Kemba Walker and Terry Rozier, but there's been zero traction on that front thus far.

Sep 5 - 11:46 AM

Cedi Osman, Tristan Thompson and Ante Zizic are expected to suit up for their home countries at the 2019 FIBA World Cup Qualifiers.

The second round of the World Cup Qualifiers will take place from September 13-17, so these guys should be ahead of the curve with regards to their conditioning when training camp opens up in late-September. Osman averaged 20.0 points and 8.0 rebounds through two games at Summer League, and he's looking at a ton of opportunity in Cleveland in wake of LeBron James' departure, so he's on the radar as a potential late-round target.
Sep 3 - 4:30 PM

Jordan Clarkson tallied 29 points (on 12-of-16 shooting), five triples, six assists and four rebounds for the Philippines on Friday in the 2018 Asian Games.

Clarkson finished the tournament averaging 26.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists. This serves as a nice tuneup for training camp, which begins later this month. Clarkson will be competing for backcourt minutes with George Hill, Collin Sexton and J.R. Smith.

Jordan Clarkson battled cramps while playing for the Philippines in the Asian Games, but it hasn't caused him to miss any games.

The highlight of Clarkson's tourney has been his 22-point, nine-assist, six-rebound performance in a win vs. Korea on Monday. He'll get one more chance to shine in a consolation match vs. Syria, and should be in top-gear when training camp begins in late September.
