Mavs Nearing Two-Way Deal With Tyler Dorsey

The Mavericks are nearing an agreement on a two-way contract with shooting guard Tyler Dorsey, per Marc Stein of The Stein Line.Tyler Dorsey

As Stein noted, this move would follow the Mavs’ three-year deal with former G League Ignite guard Jaden Hardy, a rookie who was selected in the second round (No. 37 overall) of the 2022 NBA Draft.

Dorsey, 26, is 6-foot-5 and has most recently been playing for Greek club Olympiacos. He has appeared in 104 NBA games since 2017, spending time with the Hawks and Grizzlies. Overall he has compiled career averages of 6.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 104 games.

The news that the Mavs were going to offer Dorsey a deal was first reported by Stavros Barbarousis of Eurohoops. Also, Alessandro Luigi Maggi of Sportando reported the Mavs and Dorsey have already come to terms.

Dorsey recently worked out for the Mavs, so bringing him in for a longer look would make sense. He was originally drafted by the Hawks with the No. 41 overall pick in 2017.

Two-way players are destined to spend most of their time in the G League, though they can appear in up to 50 NBA games before signing a standard deal.
