Daniel (Dan) David Dickau (born September 16, 1978 in Portland, Oregon) is an American professional basketball player who last played for the Golden State Warriors from the NBA. Dickau graduated from Prairie High School in Vancouver, Washington. He played for the University of Washington Huskies prior to transferring to, and becoming a standout point guard for, the Gonzaga University Bulldogs. He was named a first team All-American his senior year along with future NBA players Juan Dixon (also a teammate of Dickau's with the Portland Trail Blazers), Jay Williams, Drew Gooden and NBA draftee Steve Logan, an honor never before achieved by a Gonzaga player—-not even all-time NBA great John Stockton. Since January 2009, he is playing for Brose Baskets in Germany.
Dickau was drafted in the first round (28th overall) by the Sacramento Kings in the 2002 NBA Draft. He has been traded eight times and worn various jersey numbers in his short career:
On December 17, 2005, as a member of the Celtics, his season was ended by a ruptured Achilles tendon sustained while playing the Chicago Bulls. At the time, he was averaging 3.3 points per game and 2.1 assists per game. On June 28, 2006, the Boston Celtics traded Dickau, center Raef LaFrentz and the 7th pick in the 2006 NBA Draft to the Trail Blazers for center Theo Ratliff and guard Sebastian Telfair. Dickau was then sent to the Knicks in the trade that sent Zach Randolph east, only to be waived when the Knicks acquired Jared Jordan. Two days later, Dickau signed with the Clippers.
