After a solid season with Olympiacos Piraeus (double winner in the Greek League and participation in the Euroleague’s Final Four) Tyler Dorsey decided to give it to another try and enter in the magic world of NBA.
Tyler Dorsey has turned down Olympiacos ‘ extension offer, as well as Turkish Power house Fener‘s offer, in order to return to the NBA.
The Greek/American guard recently traveled to the United States and had a private workout for the Dallas Mavericks, and there are many homes that the team will sign him on a 2 way contract. It’s still unclear if he will ultimately sign a deal with the Mavs, though Dorsey’s main goal is an NBA return.
Dorsey, 26, last played in the NBA during the 2018-19 season. Appearing in 104 games, all in the Regular Season, he averaged 6.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.1 blocks per contest between the Hawks and Grizzlies. After concluding his NCAA career with the Ducks, he was selected by the Hawks with the 41st pick of the 2017 NBA draft.
Dorsey finished the 2021-22 season with the reds and lifted both the Greek League title and the Greek Cup. He posted averages of 12.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.1 blocks across 38 EuroLeague contests and tapped 10.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game in the Greek Basket League
