Timberwolves Sign Guard Coming Back From ACL Tear

It was a whirlwind of a season for free agent guard PJ Dozier. He was traded twice and waived, all while being on the shelf due to a torn ACL he suffered in November. 
But he's apparently got a clean bill of health and the Minnesota Timberwolves are giving him a shot.

NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Wolves are signing Dozier to a training camp deal, confident that he'll be able to participate, fully recovered. 

Wolves new president Tim Connelly is familiar with Dozier, who played the previous three seasons under the eye of Connelly with the Denver Nuggets. The 6'6" combo guard averaged 6.7 points in 97 games with the Nuggets, with 3.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists. 

The Nuggets traded the 25-year-old, already out with the torn ACL, to the Boston Celtics in January as part of a three-team deal. The Celtics then traded him to the Orlando Magic at the trade deadline, who then subsequently waived him. 

Dozier comes in on an Exhibit 10 contract, and brings the Wolves' camp roster to the full complement of 20.

Dozier is a strong wing defender, and can add some length and defense to the T-Wolves backcourt, if he's able to make the team.
