Celtics acquire Hornets' Dan Dickau

Sept. 30, 2005

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Celtics acquired former Gonzaga University point guard Dan Dickau from the New Orleans Hornets on Friday in exchange for a second-round choice in 2006.

Dickau, who averaged 12.5 points playing for both Dallas and New Orleans last season, was acquired for the draft choice that Miami gave to Boston in a previous deal.

Dickau started 46 of his 71 games last year and averaged 4.9 assists. After the Hornets acquired the 6-foot guard from Dallas, Dickau averaged 13.2 points, 5.2 assists and 1.1 steals in 67 appearances. The Hornets will play 35 home games in Oklahoma City this season because of hurricane damage in New Orleans.

Dickau, the 28th selection in the 2002 draft by Sacramento, averaged 3.7 points and 1.7 assists in his first season with Atlanta. In his second season, Dickau averaged 2.2 points in 43 appearances with Atlanta and Portland.

He was a 2002 Associated Press first-team All-America pick and a John R. Wooden Award Top Five All-American while helping the Bulldogs to a 29-4 record and NCAA Tournament berth.
