The Boston Celtics filled their lone open roster spot on Friday with the signing of P.J. Dozier to a two-way contract, league sources told the Boston Globe.
A 21-year-old undrafted talent out of South Carolina, Dozier played in two games for the Oklahoma City Thunder last season, where he totaled two points and a rebound in 3:11 of playing time.
Dozier’s biggest impact with the Thunder came when the Thunder decided to give the 6-foot-6 Dozier the No. 35 that Kevin Durant wore during his run with the Thunder.
A key piece of South Carolina’s unlikely run to the 2017 Final Four, Dozier went undrafted and spent the majority of his rookie season with the Oklahoma City Blue of the NBA G League, where he averaged 13 points and 5.6 rebounds per game over a 43-game run.
As a two-way signing, Dozier can spend up to 45 days on the Boston roster, and will play for the Maine Red Claws when not with the Celtics. Dozier joins Walt Lemon Jr. as Boston’s other two-way signing.
