Tyler Dorsey will not play in EuroLeague next season, as multiple media outlets reported this morning. According to Eurohoops.net and Greek media outlets, Tyler Dorsey turned down the offers from Olympiacos and Fenerbache, and he will continue to the NBA.
Dorsey went through a private workout with the Dallas Mavericks last week, and he was expected to receive offers from the NBA. It’s still unclear if the Mavericks are the only team interested in signing the EuroLeague star.
Dorsey, 26, last played in the NBA during the 2018-19 season. Appearing in 104 games, all in the Regular Season, he averaged 6.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists playing for the Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies.
He posted averages of 12.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists through 38 EuroLeague games last season playing for Greek powerhouse Olympiacos. Dorsey finished the 2021-22 season the best way possible as helped his team win both the Greek League title and the Greek Cup.
The Olympiacos star would make his NBA comeback. He left the best basketball league worldwide in 2019, moving overseas to Tel Aviv for Maccabi. He stayed with Maccabi for two seasons before joining Olympiacos last summer.
The scoring guard could be one of the two players who could leave the Greek giants for the NBA this summer, with All-EuroLeague team star Sasha Vezenkov also attracting interest from the Sacramento Kings.
