Not all agents are big fans of the two-way contract (they feel it limits their player’s options and earnings), but for a player on the fringe trying to get his foot in the door of the NBA, it’s a chance. For some players, that works.
P.J. Dozier was on a two-way contract last season with the Thunder — he spent most of the season in the G-League, playing three minutes total for the Thunder all season — and now is on the same kind of contract with the Boston Celtics, the team announced.
Dozier is a 6’7″ point guard (who can play off the ball) who adds some depth to the Celtics’ guard mix. Boston obviously has Kyrie Irving and Terry Rozier at the point, then Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart at the two, but Dozier provides depth at both spots if they need to call on him due to injury or other concern.
Last season in the G-League, Dozier averaged 12.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game, plus shot 34 percent from three.
