The 1.96 m American accumulated 11.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.8 steals, and 13.8 PIR over 27.9 minutes in the French LNB Pro A League.

In 200 career NBA games (eight starts), Dekker has averages of 5.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 0.8 assists.

He spent the past two seasons abroad, splitting time between the VTB United League in Russia and the Turkish Super League.
