The top moments from PJ Dozier’s Gamecock career
PJ Dozier’s professional career took another step Wednesday.
The former South Carolina great has been named to the All-NBA G League third team for his work this season for the Maine Red Claws. The 6-foot-6, 205-pound guard averaged 21.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6.7 assists over 46 games for Maine, the Boston Celtics’ G League affiliate.
“He’s super reliable, can guard a bunch of different positions and makes plays off the pick-and-roll,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens told BostonCeltics.com at the time. “So, we could use him in a situation with our other better wings where he would be a good complementary piece with them.”
Dozier has made five game appearances for the Celtics, averaging 1.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 2.7 minutes per game. Boston entered Wednesday’s games tied for fourth in the Eastern Conference. The playoffs begin April 13.
The all-star honor caps his first year with the Celtics’ organization. Formerly with Oklahoma City, Dozier signed a two-way contract with Boston in August.
