Gary Dajaun Trent (born September 22, 1974 in Columbus, Ohio) is an American retired professional basketball player.

Trent played his high school basketball at Hamilton Township High School in Columbus, Ohio. His senior season he shot 81.4% from the field, which is the national high school record.[1]

He played college basketball at Ohio University in the Mid-American Conference (MAC), where his size and powerful play earned him the nickname "The Shaq of the MAC". Trent was named Mid-American Conference Player of the Year all three years that he played in Athens (1993, 1994, 1995).[1]

After college, Trent was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 11th pick in the 1995 NBA Draft. He was immediately traded to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for their selection, Shawn Respert. During his NBA career from 1995 to 2004, he played with the Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors, Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves.
