Should the New York Knicks unload Damyean Dotson this offseason?
New York Knicks’ rookie shooting guard Damyean Dotson has looked promising at times this season, despite the fact that his minutes have been limited this season.
Ian Begley of ESPN (h/t Daily Knicks) is reporting that some NBA teams are interested in possibly trading for Dotson this coming offseason due to the fact that it looks like rookie Frank Ntilikina could end up being a better fit as a two guard.
With Frank Ntilikina being used more often at shooting guard lately by the Knicks, several teams have internally discussed rookie shooting guard Damyean Dotson as an offseason trade target, per sources.

The 23 year-old Dotson was a second round pick of the Knicks during last year’s draft after playing his college ball at Michigan State.
Dotson started the season on the Knicks roster, but has also spent time in the G League with the Westchester Knicks.
A big reason teams wouldn’t mind adding Dotson is the fact that he connected on 44 percent of his three point attempts during his senior year at Michigan State. He has the potential to become a sharp shooter in a league that salivates over three point shooters.
One of the Knicks’ biggest problems this season has been the fact that they don’t shoot enough three-pointers, so maybe they should hold onto Dotson.
