Marc Berman of the New York Post is reporting that the Pistons and Nets have interest in Damyean Dotson.
Dotson is currently playing some of his best basketball as a Knick, after receiving four consecutive DNPs. Over the last four games he has played, he is averaging 17.8 points on a blazing hot 62.5 percent shooting from the field, along with 4.8 rebounds per game.
The Knicks have a roster decision to make in a few weeks when Allonzo Trier’s two-way NBA service time runs up (approximately December 15). Dotson is signed through the rest of this season, but has a non-guaranteed amount due next season that the Knicks, or any acquiring team, have the option to guarantee, or not, in July.
There have been no other reports confirming interest in Dotson from either Detroit or Brooklyn. In fact, Nets Daily, who is more connected than the typical “blog,” refutes Berman’s report, as they refuted Ian Begley’s report on the Nets’ interest in Frank Ntilikina earlier this week.1
Once again, I am told the the Nets are NOT interested in a Knicks guard! A couple of days ago, it was Frank Ntilinka. Nope. Now, the rumor is Damyean Dotson. Nope again. Sorry, rumor mavens.

It is important to note that Berman does not indicate that the Knicks are looking to trade the blossoming second round pick, his report simply suggests interest in the two-way guard.
