This would finally be the season he returned to the NBA and proved the instability of his first chance and his growth overseas had molded a legitimate, consistent force.
Dorsey just didn’t realize that opportunity would come via a jetlagged solo workout during a coincidental visit to Dallas.
“He’s been waiting for this moment,” Dorsey’s dad, Jerrid, said. “Rest assured, we talk daily about it.
We don’t believe there’s a better situation of this time at his career to go to. It’s almost like this Dallas fit and timing was probably about as good as it’s going to get.”
After a season playing for Greek club Olympiacos, Dorsey and his girlfriend planned to spend a month back in the U.S., first visiting her family in the Dallas area and looking at potential real estate investments.
Emens texted Mavericks general manager Nico Harrison July 1 — the first full day of NBA free agency — to alert him that Dorsey would be available for a workout that weekend, if the team had two-way contract interest.
