Hawks Cut Juan Dixon

Juan Dixon (1998-2002) was cut by the Atlanta Hawks yesterday. Brought in to training camp as a free agent to compete for a spot, Dixon ended up averaging 9 points per game in 3 preseason games. Shell Games predicts that Juan could get signed to another team once the season starts and injuries create the need for a veteran player to step in somewhere.

Over Juan's NBA career, he has averaged 8.4 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game. He has played seven seasons for four different teams (Washington, Portland, Toronto, Detroit, and Washington again). His most productive year was 2005-06, when he started 42 games for Portland and averaged over 12 points per game.
