Knicks’ Dotson Plays NBA & G League On Same Day

Knicks’ rookie and former Houston star Damyean Dotson played in games in the NBA and G League on the same day last week.

 

The 6-5, 210-pound shooting guard scored a team-high 23 points for the Westchester Knicks in a 111-100 NBAGL home loss to the Maine the Red Claws on Nov. 29 in an 11am matinee.

 

Then later that same day in an evening game at the Garden, Dotson scored five points for the NBA Knicks in a 115-86 win over the Heat.

 

In the process Dotson made history, becoming only 11th person to have ever played in both the G League and NBA in a single day.

 

A college star at the University of Houston, Dotson led the team in rebounding and was second in scoring as a senior last season, averaging 17.4 points and 6.9 boards, while guiding the Cougars to a 21-11 record.

 

He had transferred to Houston from Oregon after his sophomore season, when he had averaged 9.4 points and 3.2 rebounds for the Ducks in 2013-14.

 

The No. 44 overall pick in the 2017 Draft, Dotson is averaging 2.5 points and 1.1 rebounds with the NBA Knicks this season.

 

ESPN’s No. 40 ranked small forward in the 2012 high school class, Dotson averaged 21 points as a senior at Jack Yates HS (Houston, TX), leading the team to the to the 4A state title game.

 

He was also named the Greater Houston Player of the Year that season.
