The Celtics may have put the finishing touches on their final roster on Friday after agreeing to a two-way deal with P.J. Dozier according to a report from Sean Deveney of the Sporting News.
Dozier, 21, is a 6-foot-6 guard who played two seasons at South Carolina before declaring for the NBA Draft in 2017. He went undrafted last June but ended up signing a two-way deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the 2017-18 season. He ended up playing just two games with the big club during his rookie year, spending the majority of his time in the G-League with the Oklahoma City Blue.
Dozier posted some solid numbers given his youth at that level, averaging 13 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists. He shot 46 percent from the field, 34 percent from 3-point range and 65 percent from the free-throw line.
Dozier will fill Boston's second two-way contract slot, as he joins Walter Lemon Jr.
Dozier's youth (only 21) gives the Celtics a little bit more untapped potential to work with than usual for a two-way deal.
