Former Zags, NBA player buys Barbers franchise



Former Gonzaga University point guard Dan Dickau, whose long hair and curls were a trademark during his playing days, is now running his own barbershop.

After six seasons in the NBA, Dickau, 34, hung up his shoes in 2011. Last fall, he and his wife moved to Spokane from Vancouver.

The Barbers, which Dickau opened last week at 9331 N. Newport Highway, is his first try at operating a franchise. His one previous business venture, a for-profit basketball camp in Vancouver, lasted about a year.

He also plans to continue offering color commentary during GU game broadcasts, a job he began in 2011 and resumed last year.
