Early life and college

Dyson grew up in Potomac, Maryland's Scotland neighborhood.[1] He attended Winston Churchill High School in Potomac for his first two years of high school before transferring to Proctor Academy in Andover, New Hampshire for his final two years. While at Proctor, Dyson matured and was recruited to play basketball with the University of Connecticut Huskies under coach Jim Calhoun. During his freshman season at UConn, Dyson was compared by Calhoun to NBA players and UConn alumni Ray Allen and Richard Hamilton.[1] During his sophomore season, he and teammate Doug Wiggins were caught by on-campus police in a car with alcohol and a small amount of marijuana. He was eventually reinstated. In February 2009 during his junior year, he tore a lateral meniscus in his right knee in an on-court collision with Syracuse University guard Andy Rautins. At the time of the injury, he had started all 24 games for the Huskies, scoring in double figures 18 times and averaging 13.2 points per game.[2] He returned the following season and scored 17.7 points and 4.4 assists per game. In March 2010, the Sporting News named Dyson their 2010 Comeback Player of the Year.[3]

Professional career

2010–11 season

Dyson went undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft and played with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Oklahoma City Thunder during the 2010 summer league and preseason before being cut. He then signed with the Thunder's NBA Development League affiliate, the Tulsa 66ers. He appeared in 47 games with the 66ers, starting 10. He averaged 15.5 points and 27.3 minutes per game and was the team's leading scorer.[4][5] Following the season, Dyson was named to the United States men's national basketball team for the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. Dyson averaged 11.4 points, including a team high 19 against Uruguay. The team, composed entirely of non-NBA players due to the 2011 NBA lockout, finished with the bronze medal.[5]

2011–12 season

On December 9, Dyson was among nine players added to the training camp roster of the New Orleans Hornets.[6] He did not make their final roster, and returned to the 66ers. However, the Hornets signed him to a ten-day contract on April 10, 2012.[7] During his nine-game stint with the Hornets, he would average 7.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.2 steals per game. He would also start for them for one game.[8]

2012–13 season

On July 27, 2012, Dyson was traded to the Phoenix Suns in a three-team deal.[9] He was waived by the Suns on August 15, 2012.[10] Later that year, he signed a one year deal with Hapoel Holon to play in Israel.[11]

2013–14 season

Dyson played with the Charlotte Bobcats during the 2013 NBA Summer League. After the summer league ended, he signed a one year deal with Enel Brindisi to play in Italy.[12]

2014–15 season

On July 10, 2014, he signed with the Italian Euroleague team Dinamo Sassari for the 2014–15 season.[13]


Dyson's mother, Julie, is a pastor at the Immanuel Church of God in Germantown, Maryland.[1]
