NBA Comparison:

Strengths: Slashing left handed wing … Dawson on offense is strong without the ball making back door cuts and quick reads when the defense overplays him leading to a 47% field goal percentage for the season … He can be quite creative going to the hole making crafty layups and setting up teammates for the easy scores … Shot 80% from the free throw line in 2015 and 30% from behind the 3 point line … Possesses good height and wingspan for a wing …

Weaknesses: Compared to other NBA wings Dawson is a below average athlete… He lacks strength and ideal weight for a player his size … While Dawson is quite crafty at times in his playmaking ability he also is careless with the ball turning it over on average 3.6 times per game while averaging 2.3 assists … His biggest weakness however is his defense … He has a difficult time keeping vision with both his man and ball and is prone to getting stuck in screens on back cuts … Due to his lack of strength when he is posted up he gambles on the entry pass and more often than not leads to his man having an open uncontested shot …
 
Notes: Son of professional basketball Joe Dawson …
