- Michael Dickerson
Dickerson made a surprising return to basketball in training camp 2008 when he signed with the Cavaliers after five years out of the game. He did not make the team - he was never going to - and then he sat out the rest of the year. I think I read somewhere that he went back to touring the world, which is what he'd been doing since his initial retirement.
Dickerson then tried again this summer when he tried out with the Memphis Grizzlies. Another training camp offer was not forthcoming, but this time Dickerson took his game elsewhere when he signed in the Spanish second division in early December, joining a team called Palencia. He has played four contests for the team, playing in professional games for the first time since March 2003; in those 4 games, Dickerson has totalled 87 minutes, 47 points, 12 rebounds and 0 assists. The Spanish second division is quite a ways below the standard he used to play at, but it's still a gig. And as a 34 year old man coming back from 7 years out of action after retiring due to injury, it's a pretty good start.
