6-Year NBA Swingman Signs in Serbia

After his 6-year career sort of petered out by the end of the 2022-23 season, former Denver Nuggets swingman PJ Dozier is taking his talents overseas to continue his basketball career, as he's signed with Partizan in Serbia. 

The 6'6" swingman can play either guard spot, and small forward. With Partizan Belgrade, he'll actually be replacing former No. 5 overall NBA pick Dante Exum, who just recently signed to return to North America with the Dallas Mavericks. 

Dozier was a rotation regular in Denver for three seasons from 2019 to 2022, averaging 19 minutes per game, while putting up 6.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists. Unfortunately, a torn ACL derailed his third season there. 

He was with the Minnesota Timberwolves' G League team to start last season, and wound up being brought in with the Sacramento Kings, where he played just 16 games, and only five minutes per contest. He began his career with a couple of games in Oklahoma City as an undrafted free agent, then moved on to the Boston Celtics for a handful of games the next season.
