Fenton Pete Mickeal (born February 22, 1978) is an American professional basketball player who last played for FC Barcelona of the Spanish League. He was selected by the Dallas Mavericks in the second round, with the 58th pick of the 2000 NBA Draft.

High school career

Born in Rock Island, Illinois, Mickeal attended Rock Island High School, the same school attended by former NBA player and coach Don Nelson. In two full seasons of varsity basketball, Mickeal broke the school's all-time scoring record.

College career

After high school, Mickeal played for two years as a small forward with Indian Hills Community College. As a sophomore at Indian Hills C.C., he was named National Junior College Player of the Year, after leading the team to its second straight national championship. For his junior year, he transferred to play at Cincinnati, where he played with the Cincinnati Bearcats. As a senior, he was named an Honorable Mention All-American by the Associated Press.

Professional career

NBA

After two productive seasons with Cincinnati, Mickeal entered the 2000 NBA Draft. After being drafted by the Dallas Mavericks, Mickeal participated in training camp with them. He never played for them in an actual game.

His contract with the Mavs was waived, but he was soon signed as a free agent by the New York Knicks. He was on the injured reserve his entire time as a Knick, and was waived later in the season. In the 2002–03 season, he drew attention again from the NBA, being signed to a practice-squad contract with the Houston Rockets, before being waived a week later. He also played with the Orlando Magic in the Orlando Summer League and the Las Vegas Summer League in 2004.

American Basketball Association

After his unsuccessful run in the NBA, Mickeal went on to have great success in the ABA with the Tampa Bay ThunderDawgs, and particularly the Kansas City Knights. After leading the Knights to a 35–5 record in the 2001-02 season, Mickeal's team won that year's championship, and he was awarded the league MVP award[2] and Final MVP award.

Asia

After the 2001-02 season in the ABA, Mickeal signed with the Talk 'N Text Phone Pals team of the Philippine Basketball Association. He also played in the South Korean League during the 2006–07 season, playing with Daegu Orions.

Europe

After playing with the Houston Rockets practice-squad, Mickeal returned overseas for the 2003-04 season. He played in the Greek League with both Peristeri and Makedonikos, with a brief 2004 interlude in the Russian SuperLeague with Dynamo Moscow. In 2005, he moved to the Spanish League club Breogán. After a season there, he went to the South Korean League for the 2006–07 season, playing with Daegu Orions, before returning to the Spain to play with the Spanish League club TAU Cerámica.

In 2009, he signed with the Spanish League club FC Barcelona.[3] During the Euroleague 2009-10 season, Mickeal played at small forward for FC Barcelona, and he helped them win the Euroleague 2010 Final.
