Knicks Sign Second-Rounder Damyean Dotson

AUGUST 7: The Knicks have officially signed Dotson, the team announced today in a press release.

JULY 22: The Knicks have reached an agreement with second-round pick Damyean Dotson, tweets Ian Begley of ESPN. Dotson’s contract covers three years, with the first two fully guaranteed.

Dotson, a 3-point marksman out of Houston, was taken with the 44th selection in last month’s draft. He averaged 17.4 points per game as a senior with the Cougars and shot an impressive 44% from long distance.

The 6’5″ guard impressed Knicks officials with his performance in the Orlando Summer League, according to Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News.

“He can really shoot the ball, he’s athletic,” said Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek. “I wasn’t quite sure how his feel for the game is but his feel for the game has been great in these scrimmages. He’s making the right passes at the right time and he’s one of those guys when he gets an open look at it you’re pretty confident he’s going to make it.”

    He has the Currylike/Korverlike shot, capable defender (Thank God) but can he do anything else? (Create his own shot) That will be key. Haven’t been this excited for a 2nd round pick in a looooooong time.

    Here is the best NBA scouting report for a player I’ve ever read, on him. (link below)
