He is a cousin of former New Jersey Nets guard David Wesley.

The 6' 5" shooting guard was raised in Seattle, Washington to the Vancouver Grizzlies for Vancouver's draft pick, Steve Francis, after Francis demanded a trade because he did not want to play for a Canadian team. In the lockout-shortened 1999 NBA season, Dickerson led the league in games played (50), was sixth in three point field goal percentage (.433), and was named All-Rookie 2nd Team.

He played all 82 games for the Grizzlies in 1999-2000, averaging 18.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.41 steals per game. His scoring average fell to 16.3 points per game the following season. After the Grizzlies relocated to Memphis, Tennessee, he played in just ten games over the next two seasons due to injuries.

He was released by the Grizzlies in 2003 and prematurely retired due to severe hamstring and groin injuries from which he was unable to fully recover.[1] In 2008 he attempted a comeback. He was invited to training camp by the Cleveland Cavaliers, but was waived on October 8, 2008. He holds career averages of 15.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game in 212 contests.[1]
