Joey Dorsey, a veteran of the NBA and European basketball, will spend the next two seasons with Barcelona, tweets international basketball writer David Pick. Dorsey, who was released by the Nuggets last August, will make more than $1MM over the life of his new contract.
The 32-year-old Dorsey was one of four players sent from Houston to Denver last summer in the Ty Lawson trade. However, the Nuggets waived him and his $1,015,421 salary before training camp began. He signed with the Turkish club Galatasaray and later joined Barcelona.
A second-round pick by the Trail Blazers in 2008 after reaching the NCAA finals with Memphis, the 6’8″ Dorsey established a reputation as a physical defender and rebounder during his time in the NBA, but never had enough offensive production to stay in one place very long. He averaged 2.6 points and 3.9 rebounds during his four-year career with the Rockets, Kings and Raptors.
