In a Twitter report by Royce Young of ESPN.com, the Thunder have officially signed P.J. Dozier to a two-way contract.

Dozier’s contract fills the final two-way slot allowed for parent teams in the NBA. That being said, just like Daniel Hamilton, P.J. Dozier will split his time between the Oklahoma City Blue and the Thunder, allowing a maximum of 45 days spent in the NBA.

Although we don’t expect Dozier to spend a significant amount of time on court with the Thunder by any means at all, it’s great to see the Thunder’s General Manager ,Sam Presti, make efficient and realistic use of the relatively new contract method.

Dozier, like Hamilton, is an ideal use of the two-way as he can extend and refine his self-development, allowing OKC to further examine his raw talent, preparing him for a possible career in the association.

Dozier spent two seasons at South Carolina, appearing in 70 games, starting 64 times, and averaging 10.4 points, 3,9 rebounds, and 2.4 assists across 24 minutes of play-time per game.
