今夏塞迪·奥斯曼抵达圣安东尼奥时并不知道自己对自己的新球队或城市会有什么期待。

他被克利夫兰交易走,在那里度过了自己在NBA的最初六个赛季,并准备在马刺开启自己职业生涯中一段不确定的篇章。

然后格雷格·波波维奇在一次训练中第一次对奥斯曼大吼大叫,而这位新人立即感到宾至如归。

“我在欧洲打球学到的一件事,”出生于北马其顿的奥斯曼说,“当一名教练不和你说话或对你吼叫时,你甚至不在他的脑海中。只要他对你吼叫,他就关心你。”

奥斯曼是否会继续忍受下个赛季波波维奇的更多语言拥抱还有待观察。

这位28岁的小前锋因脚踝扭伤缺席,在马刺的最后四场比赛中没有复出时间表。

如果他无法重返球场,奥斯曼已经打了他在银黑军团中的最后一场比赛,这并非不可能——尽管不确定。

作为今夏一名不受限制的自由球员,奥斯曼并未排除在与马刺打完一个稳定的首个赛季后重返圣安东尼奥,在这期间他成长为球队领袖的角色。

“更换球队,加入一支全新的球队,对我来说是一次很好的改变,”奥斯曼说。“我真的很高兴我来到这里。”

奥斯曼于7月被交易至马刺,作为一项三方交易的一部分,马克斯·斯特鲁斯从迈阿密被送到克利夫兰。

这笔交易让奥斯曼离开了自己唯一熟悉的篮球之家——在那里骑士队成长为季后赛竞争者——转会至圣安东尼奥,马刺刚刚在选秀中得到状元秀维克托·文班亚马。

奥斯曼充分利用了他在圣安东尼奥的时间,打了72场比赛场均6.8分,除了三场之外,其他所有比赛都是替补出场。他在三分球命中率方面达到38.9%,领跑球队。

马刺的无球进攻很适合奥斯曼,他在克利夫兰主要作为定点射手。

“他是球队的宠儿,”波波维奇谈到奥斯曼时说。“他很有趣。他加入比赛,我们中的任何人都不知道他将做什么,但他会积极进取。”

在二月将道格·麦克德莫特交易至印第安纳后,奥斯曼和29岁的德文特·格雷厄姆成为队中年龄最大的球员。

这对奥斯曼来说是一种新感觉,在他职业生涯的这一刻,他并未被要求扮演“精明的资深人士”的角色。

“对我来说,这是一个有点不寻常的角色,”奥斯曼笑着说。“作为球队中年龄最大的球员之一,我不知道感觉是好还是坏。”

7月1日,奥斯曼的670万美元合同将到期,他将成为马刺阵容中唯一有资格进入无限制自由球员市场的球员。

替补前锋桑德罗·马穆克拉斯维利将成为受限制的自由球员,俱乐部保留与其匹配外部报价的权利。

一些其他球员有资格以几乎没有财务影响的方式被解雇。格雷厄姆、前锋朱利安·尚帕涅、中锋查尔斯·巴塞和前锋多米尼克·巴洛下赛季的交易没有得到保证。

马刺的自由球员计划仍然灵活,尤其是6月份维克托·文班亚马加入之后,还有另一个高选秀权。球队没有关闭带回奥斯马的大门,此举无疑会在马刺更衣室引起掌声。

“我非常喜欢和塞迪一起打球,” 控球后卫特雷·琼斯说。“他是对比赛了如指掌,在高水平上思考比赛的人。他也是一个有竞争力的人,总想赢球并尽他所能帮助球队赢球。”

马刺本赛季的大部分时间都是作为联盟中最年轻的球队运营的。管理层几乎肯定会希望在阵容年轻的核心周围增加经验丰富的资深人士。

就奥斯曼而言,此举可能是保留一位已经在这里的经验丰富的人士。他和扎克·科林斯是球队中唯一在季后赛出场次数超过两位数的球员。

“他在职业生涯早期就曾效力于打进季后赛的球队,”琼斯说。“他一直处于胜利文化中,所以他知道赢得篮球比赛需要什么。”

如果马刺要求奥斯曼回来,他将很乐意倾听。

“我在这里与每个人都建立了非常好的关系,我很愿意回来,”奥斯曼说。“归根结底,这是一笔生意。我们拭目以待。”

尽管马刺的战绩糟糕——在周日主场对阵费城的比赛中战绩为19胜58负——奥斯曼表示,他可以设想一个光明的未来,以维克托·文班亚马为闪耀的明星。

马刺在周日进入比赛时,在前10场比赛中打出50%胜率,战绩为5胜5负。

“你有点兴奋,”奥斯曼说。“我认为我们意识到了自己能够做到什么。我对这支球队真的感到满意。我认为从经验的角度来看,这对我们来说是伟大的一年。

“显然,我们在赛季中经历了很多起伏,但这是一个过程,”他说。“这不是立刻就能奏效的事情。我们需要建立这个,我认为我们处于有利的位置可以做到这一点。”

奥斯曼能否帮助马刺在下个赛季迈出下一步,这是一个留给7月的问题。

现在,他打算利用赛季的最后一周康复自己的脚踝伤势,并等待来自波波维奇更多严厉的爱。

“他可以对我大吼大叫,一切都很好,”奥斯曼咧嘴一笑说。“我不会生他的气。”

Cedi Osman open to returning to the Spurs

Cedi Osman arrived in San Antonio over the summer not knowing what to expect from his new team or city.

He had been traded from Cleveland, where he had spent each of his first six NBA seasons, and was set to open an uncertain chapter in his career with the Spurs.

Then Gregg Popovich screamed at Osman for the first time at practice, and the newcomer instantly felt right at home.

“One thing I’ve learned from playing in Europe,” the North Macedonia-born Osman said, “when a coach is not talking to you or yelling at you, you’re not even in his mind. As long as he’s yelling at you, he cares about you.”

Whether Osman will be around to endure more of Popovich’s verbal hugs next season remains to be seen.

The 28-year-old small forward is out with an ankle sprain, with no timetable to return over the Spurs’ final four games.

If he does not make it back on the court, it is possible – although not certain – Osman has played his last game in silver and black.

An unrestricted free agent this summer, Osman has not ruled out a return to San Antonio after a solid first campaign with the Spurs, one in which he grew into his role as a team leader.

“Changing teams and coming to a brand new team, it’s been a good change for myself,” Osman said. “I’m really happy I’m here.”

Osman was traded to the Spurs in July, part of a three-team deal that sent sharpshooting forward Max Strus from Miami to Cleveland.

The transaction relocated Osman from the only basketball home he had ever known – and where the Cavaliers had built themselves into a playoff contender – to San Antonio, where the Spurs had just landed the No. 1 pick in the draft in Victor Wembanyama.

Osman made the most of his time in San Antonio, averaging 6.8 points in 72 appearances, all but three of them coming off the bench. He shot 38.9% from 3-point range, tops on the team.

The Spurs’ motion offense has been a good fit for Osman, who in Cleveland was deployed mostly as a spot-up shooter.

“He’s kind of a team favorite,” Popovich said of Osman. “He’s a lot of fun. He gets in the game and none of us really know what he’s going to do, but he’s going to be active and aggressive.”

Following the February trade of Doug McDermott to Indiana, Osman and the 29-year-old Devonte’ Graham were left as the oldest players on the roster.

It was a new feeling for Osman, who until this point in his career had not been asked to play the role of “savvy veteran.”

“It is a role that is a little bit unusual for me,” Osman said with a laugh. “Being one of the oldest guys on the team, I don’t know if it feels good or feels bad.”

Come July 1, Osman’s $6.7 million contract will expire and he will become the only player on the Spurs’ roster eligible to enter unrestricted free agency.

Reserve forward Sandro Mamukelashvili will become a restricted free agent, with the club retaining the right to match outside offers.

A handful of other players are eligible to be let go with little to no financial impact. Graham, forward Julian Champagnie, center Charles Bassey and forward Dominick Barlow on are non-guaranteed deals for next season.

The Spurs’ plans for free agency remain fluid, especially with another high draft pick on the way to join Wembanyama in June. The team has not closed the door on bringing back Osman, a move that would no doubt be met with applause in the Spurs’ locker room.

“I like playing with Cedi a lot,” point guard Tre Jones said. “He is someone that knows the game, thinks the game at a high level. He is also a competitive guy, always wants to win and do everything he can to help the team win.”

The Spurs operated most of this season as the youngest team in the league. The front office will almost certainly want to add experienced veterans around the roster’s youthful core.

In Osman’s case, the move might be to retain one of those experienced hands that is already here. He and Zach Collins are the only players on the roster with double-digit playoff appearances.

“He has been on teams that have made runs in the playoffs early in his career,” Jones said. “He has been around winning cultures, so he knows what it takes to win basketball games.”

If the Spurs ask Osman back, he will be glad to listen.

“I really built a great relationship here with everyone, and would love to come back,” Osman said. “At the end of the day, it’s a business. We’ll see how it goes.”

Despite the Spurs’ shoddy record – 19-58 heading into Sunday’s home game against Philadelphia – Osman said he can envision a bright future with Wembanyama as the shining star.

The Spurs entered Sunday having played .500 ball over their previous 10 games, going an even 5-5.

“You kind of get excited,” Osman said. “I think we realize what we’re capable of doing. I really feel comfortable with this team. I think in terms of experience it was a great year for us.

“Obviously we had a lot of ups and downs during the season, but it’s a process,” he said. “It’s not something that’s going to click right away. We need to build this up and I think we’re in good position to do that.”

Whether Osman will be in position to help the Spurs take the next step next season is a question for July.

For now, he aims to spend the final week of the season rehabilitating his ankle injury and awaiting more tough love from Popovich.

“He can scream and me and it’s all good,” Osman said with a grin. “I’m not going to get mad at him.”
