Damyean Dotson is a talented, athletic swingman that likely projects into a shooting specialist role if he makes his way to the NBA. He is a solid shooter that moves quite well off the ball, and he can make numerous jumpers off the catch, dribble, as well as off of screens. He also seems to have a tendency to make the right play on the court, as he was an integral role player in his first two seasons at Oregon.
On the down side, he was dismissed after his sophomore year as he was accused of being in a major off-court incident, which forced him to transfer to another school. Surely, NBA teams could delve deep into this, and they will have to find out for themselves if Dotson should be a player that they take a chance on.
But definitely, Damyean Dotson had a very good Portsmouth Invitational tournament this year, as he helped his team win the PIT title and he also took home the MVP honors, as that could increase his chances to land on a roster in the NBA.
