   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)

Dan Dickau - NBA veteran Dickau was taking an approach similar to Daniels last year, when he returned from a European career to average 14.9 points and 7.1 assists per game for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. This year, though, the Polish citizen has not signed anywhere. It is unclear whether he intends do; Dickau now has a basketball academy business venture that appears, from the outside at least, to be a successful and professional operation.

   The best of what's left after what was the best of what's left has gone and is no longer left

- Dan Dickau - So it's pretty obvious by now what Dan Dickau provides. Jumpshooting, no size, runs the break and the pick and roll, little defense, bouncy hair. Dickau turns 32 in September and can no longer dine out on that half-season he had with the Hornets in 2005. Nonetheless, I'm listing the newly Polish citizen anyway, partly because he averaged 15 points and 7 assists per game for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants last season.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 17

- Dan Dickau

Dickau signed with the Suns for preseason, instead of signing with the Celtics as was first thought. He played in 5 preseason games, totalling 14 points and 7 assists in 39 minutes, but did not make the team. He was never going to, really, because even though the Suns had open roster spots to play for, they're the Suns. Since being waived by Phoenix, Dickau has not signed elsewhere, which seems strange for a 31 year old man whose career will be on the downslope soon. Perhaps he's injured.

Dan Dickau - Dickau spent last year as a player development coach with the Blazers, but was not brought back this season. He also ceased operating his basketball academy, and, while in the running for the vacant Idaho Stampede head coaching job this summer, did not make it. He currently works as an analyst for locally televised Gonzaga games.
