Cavs News: Cedi Osman Set to Participate in All-Star Weekend Event
- Updated: January 29, 2019

It’s a huge honor for the second-year forward who has made a lot of progress in his first season as a starter. While he struggled early in the season, averaging just 10.3 points per game in the month of November, he has since turned a corner. He’s averaging 14.1 points per game in the month of January, and 19.2 points per game in his last five.
While it’s fantastic news that Osman is being noticed league-wide, the Cavs’ other high-profile youngster, point guard Collin Sexton, was not selected to participate in the game. He could still make the team in the end, however.
Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball was selected to suit up for U.S. Team in the game, but a recent injury will likely render him out. That could open up a spot for the Cavs’ rookie point guard.
Sexton is averaging 14.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game. While he has shown flashes of star potential, he has also struggled with consistency throughout his rookie campaign.
Either way, it will be great to root for Osman come All-Star Weekend.
