  • Good rebounder for a guard (11.5 TRB%)
  • Good size to play the 2
  • Has NBA range on his 3 point jumper

Weaknesses

Overall

  • Dotson is an absolute flamethrower from the perimeter, with one of the best strokes in this class. He can light it up from outside and is also a very good shot creator off the dribble, with great efficiency in pull-up situations. A good athlete as well, Dotson has nice size and bounce to play shooting guard in the NBA. However, his effort and IQ on defense is really lacking, something that metrics back up. Luckily for him, he was such an efficient offensive player at Houston that he’ll likely find a place on a roster as a sweet shooting offensive option – something along the lines of an Anthony Morrow.
