Brian Skinner (born May 19, 1976 in Temple, Texas) is an American professional basketball player in the NBA who is currently signed with the Los Angeles Clippers. A 6'9", 265 lb forward-center from Baylor University, Skinner was selected by the Clippers in the first round (22nd overall) of the 1998 NBA Draft. He has since played for the Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, Sacramento Kings, Portland Trail Blazers, and the Phoenix Suns, averaging 4.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game over his career.

Between his stints for the Clippers and the Cavaliers, he was traded to the Chicago Bulls and the Toronto Raptors but never played a game for either team.

He was traded from the 76ers to Sacramento in the deal that sent Kings superstar Chris Webber to Philadelphia.[1] During his stint in Sacramento during the 2004–05 season, he had one of his best career years with a 7.4 points per game average on a 55.4 percent shooting while also grabbing 8.7 rebounds per game. He also recorded a career high of 1.7 blocks per game during that season.

In early 2006, he was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers, who then traded him in the 2006 off-season back to Milwaukee (along with Steve Blake and Ha Seung-Jin) for Jamaal Magloire.[2]

For the 2006–07 season, Skinner averaged 4.4 points and 5.7 rebounds in 22.7 minutes per game.

Skinner and the Phoenix Suns reached an agreement on a one-year deal in September 2007.[3] On July 31, 2008, Skinner signed with the Clippers, his former team.[4]
