Damyean Da'Kethe Dotson (born May 6, 1994) is an American professional basketball player for the Gaziantep Basketbol of the Basketbol Süper Ligi (BSL). He played college basketball for Oregon and Houston before being selected with the 44th pick of the 2017 NBA draft by the Knicks.
He played two seasons for the University of Oregon. After his sophomore season, he and teammates Dominic Artis and Brandon Austin were dismissed due to sexual assault allegations. No one was ever charged due to a lack of evidence and conflicting statements made by the victim. He subsequently enrolled at Houston Community College where he did not play basketball but took anger management courses with John Lucas II.
