Bradley Ernest Davis (born December 17, 1955 in Rochester, Pennsylvania) is a retired American basketball player who spent the bulk of his NBA career with the Dallas Mavericks.

Davis graduated from Monaca High School and played basketball there under local legend coach Dave Nichol. After attending the University of Maryland, College Park for three academic years (1974/75-1976/77), Davis was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round (15th pick overall) of the 1977 NBA Draft. He played for the Lakers, and then for the Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz, as well as for the Great Falls Sky (WBA–Western Basketball Association) and for the Anchorage (Alaska) Northern Knights (CBA), prior to having been picked up in 1980 by the expansion Mavericks, where he would spend the rest of his career (altogether 12 seasons).

In April 1992, Davis retired after 15 NBA seasons (12 of them with Mavericks) as the final Maverick from the team's first season. That same year, on November 14, Davis became the first Maverick to have his jersey retired when his #15 was raised to the rafters of Reunion Arena.

In 1993, Davis became an assistant coach under Dick Motta. At the same time, he also took a position as a color commentator for Mavericks television games and then later on the radio. He remained as the radio broadcast analyst until the 2007-2008 season, when the decision was made for Davis to switch positions with then-television analyst and current radio analyst Bob Ortegel. Davis also serves as the Mavericks' player development coach and community services representative.
