"I feel it's easier for me and I'm confident in my shots," Osman said. "The last two months I changed my playing style. I started attacking more."

"It seems like he's allowing the game to come to him."
The Cavs want to keep their flexibility with the February 7 trade deadline less than two weeks away. The move makes sense, but it's just a reminder of how quickly things can end in professional sports, especially when you're on a 10-day contract.
