Clarence Weatherspoon (born September 8, 1970 in Crawford, Mississippi) is an American professional basketball player formerly in the NBA.

After a college career at The University of Southern Mississippi, Weatherspoon was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers as the ninth pick in the 1992 NBA Draft. He has since played for the 76ers, the Golden State Warriors, the Miami Heat, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the New York Knicks and the Houston Rockets, averaging 11.5 points per game throughout his career.

At six-foot-seven-inches and 250 pounds (201 cm, 113 kg), he was nicknamed "Baby Barkley" early during his career due to a similar aggressive playing style attributed to fellow short-statured NBA superstar power forward and former 76er, Charles Barkley.

He participated in the 1993 Slam Dunk contest, finishing second to Harold Miner with a overall score of 92.
