He tested positive overseas for Nandrolone, an anabolic steroid. He's still in Spain while, according to his wife, the urine sample is to be tested again.
"He is kind of in limbo," Robyn Dixon said. "He is still under contract with the team. Until the team said it is severing ties, he probably needs to stay over there."
She said the Dixons believe his positive steroid test resulted from an over-the-counter supplement.
Dixon was in training camp with the Atlanta Hawks but did not make the team. He played initially in Greece -- where the test was administered -- and then in Spain, where he now stays in the city of Malaga.
Said his wife: "He definitely was not ready to go over there as far as his career, but he was appreciative of the opportunity and thought if he still can play his game he might have an opportunity to play in the NBA again."
