Billy Eugene Owens (born May 1, 1969, in Carlisle, Pennsylvania) is an American former professional basketball player.

As a high school senior, Owens averaged 34 points per game, and helped lead Carlisle High School (Pennsylvania) to four consecutive state titles. He was considered to be the second best prep player of 1988, behind Alonzo Mourning. Owens and Mourning were co-MVP's in the McDonalds' Game.

He played for the US national team in the 1990 FIBA World Championship, winning the bronze medal. [1]

As a 6' 9" small forward/shooting guard from Syracuse University, he was selected by the Sacramento Kings in the 1991 NBA Draft but after Owens remained a holdout beyond the start of the regular season, he was traded to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for high-scoring guard Mitch Richmond, a trade that has been regarded as one of the most lopsided in NBA history.[2] Owens spent ten seasons with the Warriors, Miami Heat, Sacramento Kings, Seattle SuperSonics, Philadelphia 76ers, and Detroit Pistons.
