Fenton Pete Mickeal (born February 22, 1978) is a left handed American professional basketball player for FC Barcelona of the Spanish League. He was selected by the Dallas Mavericks in the second round (58th pick) in the 2000 NBA Draft.
High School, College, and the NBA 
Born in Rock Island, Illinois, USA, 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. He then played for two years as a small forward with Indian Hills Community College before transferring his junior year to play at Cincinnati. 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. After two productive seasons in Cincinnati, being named an Honorable Mention All-American by Associated Press as a senior, Mickeal entered the 2000 NBA Draft. After being drafted by the Dallas Mavericks, he participated in training camp with them. He never played for them in an actual game. His contract 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.
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. Leading the Knights to a 32–5 record in 2002, Mickeal's team won that year's championship and he was awarded the league MVP award.
After the 2002 season in the ABA, Mickeal signed with the Talk 'N Text Phone Pals team of the Philippine Basketball Association. He led his team to the league championship and was the league's top scorer on his first season. In 2002–03, he drew attention one last time from the NBA, being signed to a practice-squad contract with the Houston Rockets before being waived a week later.
He returned overseas in 2004, this time playing in the Greek League for Peristeri and later Makedonikos, with a brief 2004 interlude in the Russian Superleague A with Dynamo Moscow. In 2005, he moved to the Spanish League with Breogán. After a season there, he went to the South Korean League for the 2006–07 season, playing with Daegu Orions, before returning to Spain with TAU Cerámica. In 2009, he signed with FC Barcelona. This season Mikeal at starting small forward helped FC Barcelona win the 2010 Euroleague Basketball Championship.
