Air Avellino, an Italian club that just made it to the Euroleague for the first time, named Dan Dickau their new point guard. According to club President Vincenzo Ercolino, Air Avelino was looking for Dan, because of their aim “to find a player that could make a difference and dictate the tempo of our team. He is a serious professional with NBA experience. We have nothing to envy of any other playmaker that arrived in Italy this year.”
I am sure, some US media will think about Dan again as a role NBA player, that is not worth p(l)aying in the NBA anyway – so let him go to Europe, but his 12.2 points and 5.2 assists he averaged with the New Orleans Hornets in 2004-05 promise a great signing for Avellino.
