Here's a history:

6/02 traded to Atlanta

6/04 traded to Portland

7/04 traded to Golden State

8/04 traded to Dallas

12/04 traded to New Orleans

9/05 traded to Boston

I challenge you to name a player that has been traded more frequently in such a short period of time in any sport.

Dickau is your classic "great player on bad team/benchwarmer on good team" kinda guy.

See also: Sidney Wicks, Bob McAdoo, World B. Free, Christian Laettner, etc.

Bob McAdoo????

Okay, so maybe McAdoo doesn't deserve to be in this crowd, but he had some of his best years for some really bad teams in Buffalo and Detroit. I guess he was something of the Kevin Garnett of his day.

Maybe not a great comparison, but check out the history of Jim Jackson....

92-96/97 Dallas - Traded to NJ midseason (for shawn bradley in a then record setting 9 player deal)

96/97 NJ

97-98 Phi - Looks like he was traded to Golden State this year

97/98 - Golden State

98/99 - Portland (portland traded him and Isiah Rider for Steve Smith at the end of the season)

99-00/01 - Atlanta (appers to be another midseason trade to cleveland)

00/01 - Cleveland

01/02 - Miami

02/03 - Sacramento

03-04/05 - Houston (looks like he was traded again midseason to phoenix)

04-05/06 - Phoenix

05/06 - Lakers....

He may be done for now. Also, i'm not sure all those mid season splits on teams were trades. He could have been dropped/added for all I know).

Since 1992, dude has played for 13 different teams. I never understood how a guy who averaged 14.3 points for his career (and at times, much more) never landed a long term deal with anybody. Was he a bad teammate?

He's a "tweener". Good enough to score points on a regular basis, but not good enough to be a star. For some reason, those types are considered disposable in the NBA, and are regularly passed from team to team. Billy Owens had a similar career.

Teams would rather keep a "role player" than a generic guy who can guarantee 15 points a game.
