Damyean Dotson Backup shooting guard

Slowly but surely, Damyean Dotson has emerged to grab the backup shooting guard slot from Wayne Ellington and Allonzo Trier.

It wasn’t long ago Dotson was a complete afterthought in a crowded field after returning from offseason shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum and missing the preseason.

Dotson, a second-round pick by Phil Jackson in 2017, started the regular season out of the rotation. He played three minutes in the first four games — in three of those he didn’t play at all — after being the starting shooting guard to close last season.

Damyean Dotson College career

He played two seasons for the University of Oregon. After his sophomore season, he and teammates Dominic Artis and Brandon Austin were dismissed due to sexual assault allegations. No one was ever charged due to a lack of evidence and conflicting statements made by the victim. He subsequently enrolled at Houston Community College where he did not play basketball but took anger management courses with John Lucas II.

He transferred to the University of Houston. As a senior, he averaged 17.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game and was named to the First Team American Athletic Conference.
