DOTSON LOOKING TO MAKE MARK WITH KNICKS
The combination of Dotson’s blistering hot shooting in the Orlando Pro Summer League and the fickle nature of free agency have combined to enhance the 6-5 shooting guard’s chances of making the Knicks.
Since missing his first five three-pointers, Dotson has settled down and tore up the nets, draining his last 8-of-11 three’s. He was 5-of-10 from the field including 3-of-3 from behind the arc in the Knicks 99-87 loss to Oklahoma City on Monday afternoon.
Orlando beat the Knicks 84-73. Dotson didn’t have a great offensive game, but did do a little bit of everything:
Last game is tomorrow against Miami at 7 am on NBAtv
Dotston was drafted 44th overall last month by New York out of the University of Houston, and wowed scouts in Orlando with his play on both ends and NBA-ready body. He represented the brightest spot on a team that went 1-4 in Orlando, dropping 20 points in the finale Thursday with nine rebounds and four assists.
Nice long analysis. They love Dot.
“Damyean Dotson, the 44th pick in the 2017 draft, was without a doubt the best player in a Knicks uniform throughout Summer League.”
I wonder if the Rockets got Hood Van Winkle, meaning that they were ready to draft Damyean Dotson with the 45th pick. DD will be a solid player in the NBA.
Should have taken him at 43 then as it was known the Knicks were looking at him.
Dot gets a mention:
"As The News reported, the Knicks had also begun negotiating with Damyean Dotson, a sharpshooting wing who was drafted 44th overall in June. If given more than a two-year deal, Dotson’s contract will have to fit into cap space — thus eating up the little Mills has saved, barring a trade."
