Damyean Da'Kethe Dotson (born May 6, 1994) is an American professional basketball player for the New York Knicks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was selected with the 44th pick of the 2017 NBA draft by the Knicks.

College career[edit]

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.[1] He subsequently enrolled at Houston Community College where he did not play basketball but took anger management courses with John Lucas II.[2]

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.[3]

On August 7, 2017, Dotson signed with the Knicks[4] and during his rookie season, he received multiple assignments to the Westchester Knicks of the NBA G League.[5] On November 29, Dotson became the eleventh player in history to play in the G League and NBA in the same day.[6] On April 6th, 2018, Dotson scored a career high 30 points and a career high 11 rebounds in a 122-98 win off the bench against the Miami Heat.[7]
