Greek-American guard Tyler Dorsey, who auditioned for the Los Angeles Lakers this week, has signed a contract in the NBA G-League, as reported Marc Stein of ESPN.
The Texas Legends currently hold Dorsey’s NBA G-League rights because of the games he played with the Legends on a two-way contract with the Dallas Mavericks, so a trade would be needed for Dorsey to play elsewhere in the G-League this season.
Tyler Dorsey is trying to find another NBA contract after the Dallas Mavericks cut him in late December through the G-League.
While at least three EuroLeague teams (AS Monaco, Fenerbahce Beko and his former team, Olympiacos Piraeus) have shown interest in him, the 26-year-old player’s priority is to stay in the NBA and try to get a 10-days contract somewhere as soon as possible.
In 2021-22, Dorsey averaged 12.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2 assists when Olympiacos reached the EuroLeague Final Four. He helped the team win the Greek League and Cup titles, earning the latter’s Finals MVP nomination.
