Charles Goodrich 'Chuck' Nevitt (born June 13, 1959 in Cortez, Colorado) is a retired American professional basketball player, known primarily for his great height. At 7-foot, 5-inches, he played the center position throughout his nine-year career (1983, 1985-1990, 1992, 1993) in the NBA, and remains one of the tallest players ever in NBA history. During his career, Nevitt played with the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls, a team in Forli, Italy and San Antonio Spurs. He usually sported jersey #52.

Nevitt attended Sprayberry High School in Marietta, Georgia, and played college basketball at North Carolina State University. He was selected in the third round of the 1982 NBA Draft by the Houston Rockets, subsequently playing 15 games with the Los Angeles Lakers in 1/2 seasons.

Although playing for nine years, Nevitt appeared in only 155 games, playing a total of 826 minutes, which equates to fewer than 18 complete NBA games. After a return to the Rockets, he also appeared for the Michael Jordan-led Bulls (during a 1991-92 10-day contract), and had 1 game with the Spurs - the 1993 season opener, on November 5, in which he made 3-of-6 free throws in less than a minute against the Golden State Warriors, being released shortly after.

Nevitt played in just 16 playoff games, 7 with the Lakers and Pistons and 2 with the Rockets. He was a member of the 1985 Lakers' championship roster.
