According to the club, the deal will cover the next two seasons beyond this one, running through 2024/25. Sources tell Bugra Uzar of Eurohoops that the agreement isn’t expected to include NBA outs.
A former college standout for an Oregon team that made it to the Final Four in 2017, Dorsey thrived in the EuroLeague from 2019-22 while playing in Israel for Maccabi Tel Aviv and in Greece for Olympiacos. The 27-year-old’s success overseas led to a two-way deal with the Mavericks this past offseason, but he failed to crack Dallas’ rotation, appearing in just three games at the NBA level before being waived in late December.
Dorsey, who saw extensive action in the G League for the Texas Legends both before and after he was cut by the Mavs, performed at a high level during the Showcase Cup in the fall, averaging 24.3 points per game on .463/.470/.840 shooting in 17 appearances (32.5 MPG). His scoring efficiency slipped a little during the NBAGL regular season, as he averaged 18.9 PPG on .396/.370/.800 shooting in 12 contests (30.7 MPG).
The Legends granted Dorsey his release last week, allowing him to return overseas before the EuroLeague’s March 1 deadline to register new players. He’s joining a Fenerbahce team that features former NBA players Carsen Edwards, Johnathan Motley, and Nick Calathes, among others.
