Damyean Dotson 

Post#1 » by Flaming Mo » Tue Dec 5, 2017 12:34 pm

It certainly a weird move by Hornacek to insert him into the startling lineup while there were other candidates but it speaks to the fact that Dotson most likely is showing something in practice. Now offensively his first two starts have been rather unspectacular but defensively he has had some tremendous possessions one on one. I remember when Simmons (ORL) wanted to take him off the dribble but Dotson just stood his ground, countered every move and in the end forced Simmons to dribble the ball off his knee...

Now we aren't talking about a future Superstar here but for a second round pick he certainly Looks like a decent role Player...

Which minus the injuries could be a very valuable Player down the road... especially at a low cost...

He looks smallish. What would be everyone's guess on his actual size?

Shumpert would have been an okay pick if we got him in the 2nd

Shumpert would have been a great pick if he never **** his knee up. Dude has gone through like 3-4 surgeries.

His rookie year he looked like an actual nba starter.

Dotson is nothing like Iman. At all.

He’s more Powell like.

What does his knee have to do with never learning to dribble, shoot, or make layups at an NBA starter level?

Lance Stephenson is listed as 6'5. Doesn't he look a lot bigger than Dot?

Very good on defense. Coach doesn't run a lot of plays for him, and he should.

He should be getting a ton of shots. He's going to be good for us.

Definitely looks like a decent role player. Dotson can be like a James Posey.

Read on Twitter

Lance is built though and a wide body, so at 6'5, he'll look a lot bigger than Dotson.

I'll have to see Dotson make shots though that are not during garbage time. He can definitely turn into a Courtney Lee type of player.

That's what I see. Courtney Lee. Shumpert could ONLY play defense. Dotson has shown tons more so far.
