Avellino signed veteran point guard Dan Dickau to be its starting playmaker, the club announced Tuesday. Dickau (183, 29) will make his Euroleague debut with Avellino, which is also playing in Europe's top club competition for the first time. He arrives from the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA, where he averaged 5.3 points and 2.6 assists in 67 games last season. Overall he has appeared in 300 NBA regular season games with six different teams over the past six seasons. His best individual season came with New Orleans in the 2004-05 seasons when he averaged 12.2 points and 5.2 assists in 67 appearances.

"Our aim was to find a player that could make a difference and dictate the tempo of our team," club president Vincenzo Ercolino. "In the end we managed to bring Dan Dickau to Avellino. He is a serious professional with NBA experience. We have nothing to envy of any other playmaker that arrived in Italy this year."

Free agent point guard Dan Dickau has reportedly signed a contract with the Italian team Avellino.

Air Avellino released Dan Dickau and the earlier suspicions came true. The italian team will be playing in the Euroleague next season against powerhouses like Olympiakos, that have one of the biggest budgets in Europe and Dan Dickau was their prime target and their most expensive transfer -a contract of 1.1 million dollars- so now they need to replace him with an equally effective point guard

Good for him. Because of the absence of Ellis for sometime he will get a chance to show his stuff.
