“In (Damyean) Dotson’s case, he was a Phil Jackson draft pick. Because there’s no attachment to Rose or Perry, Dotson is as good as gone” Berman says. It’s unfortunate circumstances because this Knicks guard never got a true chance.
Dotson did start 40 games for the Knicks in the 2018-19 season. He averaged 27 minutes per and 10 points. However, it still feels like the Knicks quickly gave up on Dotson.
The Knicks recently waived Allonzo Trier. The Arizona shooting guard was instant offense for the team but somewhat of a ball hog. However, he was a defensive liability.
Dotson didn’t get a legit shot to showcase his skills for the Knicks. His minutes were very staggered throughout his career. Dotson never got a chance to find his groove despite being a above average two-way player.
The Knicks could use his 3-point shooting off the bench. Dotson shot 36% which isn’t the best but the Knicks 3-point shooting is awful to begin with.
Unfortunately, what Berman says is correct. Dotson has no ties to the new regime in the front office. But, they should notice his skill set. The New York Knicks could be losing out on a valuable bench player if they let him go.
