Dan Dickau Invited To Camp

Dan Dickau

Well here's a blast from the past.  The Globe reports:

The Celtics have offered former guard Dan Dickau a training camp invitation, according to agent Mark Bartelstein.

Dickau, who turns 31 Sept. 16, played last season in Germany, averaging 17.6 points in just five games for the Brose Baskets.

Bartelstein said his client is ready for a chance at better fortunes in Boston. Dickau played 19 games for the Celtics in 2005-06 but tore his Achilles' tendon Dec. 17, 2005, and eventually was included in the deal that netted Sebastian Telfair from Portland.

Dickau could serve as a third point guard behind Rajon Rondo and Marquis Daniels and is a favorite of general manager Danny Ainge.

I'm not that surprised honestly.  I expect we might hear a few more names like this being invited to camp.  Ainge brings in a few players every year to take a look at before cuts.  Dickau will have a chance to win the spot over someone like Lester Hudson.  If nothing else, he's available to be a designated free throw shooter.

Celtics considering, but not committed to, adding a third point guard. Possibles include rookie Hudson, vets Ty Lue, Mike Taylor and Dickau
