Robert Lorenzo Dozier, Jr. (born November 6, 1985) is an American professional basketball player who last played for the Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).

College career

In the 2007–08 season, Dozier started in all games with Memphis, along with the Memphis Tigers' future NBA players Derrick Rose, Chris Douglas-Roberts, Joey Dorsey, and Antonio Anderson. 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

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 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.
