Derrek Dickey (March 20, 1951–June 25, 2002) was an American professional basketball player and sportscaster.

A 6'7" forward, Dickey starred at the University of Cincinnati for three varsity seasons (1970-71 thru 1972-73) before being selected by the Golden State Warriors in the second round of the 1973 NBA Draft. Dickey played five seasons in the NBA with the Warriors and the Chicago Bulls, averaging 6.1 points per game and 4.9 rebounds per game. He was a key contributor on the 1975 Warriors team that won the NBA Championship.[1]

After his playing career ended, Dickey served as a color commentator on telecasts of University of Cincinnati basketball games. He also held stints as an analyst for the Sacramento Kings and the Chicago Bulls. Dickey suffered a stroke in 1997 and lost the use of his left arm and leg. Through rehabilitation, he regained his ability to walk and resumed his broadcasting duties. He also became a volunteer for the American Heart Association. In 2002, Dickey died of heart failure at his home in Sacramento.[2]
