Dickau's return to NBA cut short; Warriors waive former Zag
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - The Golden State Warriors on Sunday trimmed their roster to 16, leaving former Gonzaga great Dan Dickau looking for another job. The team waived Dickau, a point guard, to make room for DeMarcus Nelson, who was invited to training camp on a non-guaranteed contract.
Dickau left his team in Italy for a chance to return to the NBA. He played in just two of the Warriors four preseason games before being cut.
The former Gonzaga guard has bounced around between eight different teams since entering the league in 2002. His best season was in 2004 when he played with the New Orleans Hornets. He started 46 or 71 games that year and averaged 5.3 points and 2.6 assists.
