2003-04 UPPER DECK HARDCOURT CLEAR COMMEMORATIVES AUTOGRAPHS JUAN DIXON. THIS IS A AUTHENTIC AUTOGRAPH
Juan Dixon (born October 9, 1978 in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.) is an American professional basketball player currently with the NBA's Washington Wizards.
Dixon rebounded from a traumatic childhood to make the NBA. Both his mother, Juanita, and father, Phil, were heroin addicts, and died of AIDS-related illnesses before Dixon was 17 years old. He was then raised by his grandparents Roberta and Warnick Graves in Baltimore, Maryland. Dixon went on to lead the University of Maryland Terrapins to their first NCAA title in 2002 and earned Most Outstanding Player honors at the Final Four
Dixon was drafted 17th overall by the Washington Wizards in the 2002 NBA Draft. He spent the first three years of his NBA career with the Wizards. In his final season in Washington (2004-2005), he averaged eight points per game, including a career-high 35 points in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Chicago Bulls. Dixon signed as a free agent with the Portland Trail Blazers during the summer of 2005. Soon after, his Wizards and Terrapins teammate and friend Steve Blake signed with Portland as well. In his first game back in D.C., Dixon was given a standing ovation from the Verizon Center crowd upon coming off the bench towards the end of the first quarter. This was a notable feat considering Wizards fans are known to boo most ex-Wizards upon returning (such as Kwame Brown), although not surprising at all to anyone who lived in DC, considering that Juan was DC/MD/VA's adopted son. In Juan's first year with the Blazers, he started 42 times and played in 76 games. In his last year with the Wizards, he only started four games and played in 63. He also increased his scoring, assists, and shooting percentage considerably in Portland. However, he was later traded at the 2007 NBA trade deadline to Toronto for Fred Jones and future considerations.
On the 2008 NBA trade deadline, February 21, 2008, Dixon was traded from the Toronto Raptors to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for center Primož Brezec and cash considerations.
On September 24, 2008, the Washington Wizards signed Dixon to a partially guaranteed one-year deal for $1.03 million, the veterans' minimum for a player with Dixon's experience
