Robert Lorenzo Dozier, Jr. (born November 6, 1985) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for Alaska Aces of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).

College career[edit]

In the 2007–08 season, Dozier started in all 99 games with Memphis, along with the Memphis Tigers' future NBA players Derrick Rose, Chris Douglas-Roberts, and Joey Dorsey. He was a key part in the Tigers' 2008 success, which ended in a loss to the Kansas Jayhawks in the championship game of the 2008 NCAA Tournament.

Professional career[edit]

Dozier was the last player drafted in the 2009 NBA Draft, selected 60th overall pick by the Miami Heat.[1] He then signed a contract with the Greek League club Colossus Rhodes.[2] In November 2010 he signed with PAOK B.C..[3] In July 2011 he signed a one-year contract with Cholet Basket.[4]

Dozier played for the Miami Heat in the 2012 NBA Summer League.

Dozier signed with the Miami Heat on September 27, 2012 but was waived by the team on October 21, 2012. Three weeks later, on November 7, 2012 he signed a one-month contract by Spanish squad Cajasol.[5]

Dozier joined the Alaska Aces as its designated "import player" for the 2013 Commissioner's Cup season in the Philippine Basketball Association. Providing size and rebounding relief, he spurred an impressive postseason run for the Aces which culminated in a 3-game Finals sweep of the Barangay Ginebra Kings for the 2013 Commissioner's Cup Title. During Games 1 and 2 of the Finals, Dozier collected 42 combined rebounds and posted a game-high 27 points in the clincher while outdueling fellow American import Vernon Macklin in the championship round. He was named Best Import of Commissioners Cup on Game 3. He came back on the league for the same team at 2014 PBA Commissioner's Cup but they failed to defend their title.

In October 2014, he signed with Al Shabab Dubai of United Arab Emirates for the 2014–15 season.[6]
