Sean Areon Dockery (born January 5, 1983) is a retired American professional basketball player. He has played professionally in Canada, France, Romania and Germany, as well as in the U.S. Dockery was regarded as one of the nation's top high school point guards when he came to Duke University. He split time at point guard with Greg Paulus in his senior year.
Dockery shot 46.5% in his last season, while averaging 7.1 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and a team-leading 1.7 steals per game, while starting in 32 of 36 games. His 194 career steals rank him 11th in Duke history. Dockery is perhaps best remembered for his half-court shot at the buzzer to beat Virginia Tech at Cameron Indoor Stadium during his senior year.
Before the 2006 NBA Draft, Dockery was invited to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament soon after the Blue Devils' loss to LSU. Dockery posted averages of 13.7 points, 8.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals in the PIT. Dockery also played in the Orlando Pre-Draft Camp. He posted averages of 3.7 points, 4.3 assists and 1.7 steals while playing through a pulled hip flexor. Due to these performances, some considered Dockery a potential late second round draft pick. However, Dockery was not drafted and has never played for an NBA team. He has played mostly in Europe. On 5 May 2008, the Edmonton Chill of the International Basketball League announced that it released Dockery.
