Celtics sign guard P.J. Dozier to two-way contract

BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics have added another body to the roster with the signing of P.J. Dozier to a two-way contract. 
 
A 6-foot-7 guard, Dozier was on a two-way contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder last season. The 21-year-old split time between the Thunder and its Gatorade League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Blue. With the Blue, Dozier appeared in 43 games (38 starts) and averaged 12.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.4 steals in 28.4 minutes while shooting 46.5 percent from the field and 34.0 percent from 3-point range. 

Last season, he appeared in two games with the Thunder (against the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies on Feb. 8 and 11, respectively).
 
Dozier joins Walter Lemon Jr. as Boston’s second, two-way contract signing this offseason. 
 
Jabari Bird, who signed a two-way contract with the Celtics last season, had a strong Summer League showing and inked a multi-year deal with Boston during this offseason. 
 
Boston’s other two-way contract signee from last year, Kadeem Allen, was waived last month after a disappointing summer league showing.
