Osman admitted that he is aware of the ongoing rumblings, but reiterates that he is focused on playing basketball and helping the Cavs to win.

“I’ve been hearing those things,” Osman said, via Chris Fedor of “But I’m just focused on my basketball because you cannot control that. That’s why whenever I stepped on a court I was just working on my game and trying to get better. 

“It’s been six years since coming over, six years in Cleveland. I’m happy here and this is my home.”

Osman has been in the Cavs for the past five years of his NBA career. An admired fan favorite, he’s very well regarded due to his energy, impact and dirty works.
