The Boston Celtics signed guard P.J. Dozier to a two way contract on Friday. Here’s what you need to know about him.
P.J. Dozier hasn’t had the best NBA career so far. He has spent most of his career in the G-League but got his first taste of NBA basketball last season. The Boston Celtics decided to sign Dozier to a two-way deal on Friday.
