Jared Dudley (born July 10, 1985 in San Diego, California) is an American professional basketball player. He is a reserve forward for the NBA's Phoenix Suns. During his college years he played with the Boston College Eagles. Along with fellow senior Sean Marshall, he was one of the team's two captains, and was the leading scorer and rebounder on the team during his final season. Dudley was a four-year starter for the Eagles, and played in every BC game in his first three years. He had a streak of over 100 consecutive starts snapped when he suffered a stress fracture in December 2006. In his college days he earned the nickname "Junkyard Dog" for his toughness and nose for the ball.

Jared Dudley scored 30 points on November 29, 2006 against Michigan State on national television.[1] His career-high in points is 36, which he scored against Villanova in a January 19, 2005 victory during his sophomore season.[2] He averaged 19 points and 3 assists per game during his senior year.

After his senior season, Dudley was voted the ACC Player of the Year for 2007 and was a second team All-American.

On June 28, 2007, Dudley was taken 22nd overall in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Charlotte Bobcats.

Contrary to projections soon after the 2007 draft, Dudley quickly entered the Bobcats' regular playing rotation and made his first start on November 24, 2007 vs. Boston, scoring 11 points and grabbing nine rebounds.[3] He went on to establish himself as a key player in the Bobcats' rotation, starting often while with the team.

On December 10, 2008, Dudley and teammate Jason Richardson were traded to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Raja Bell, Boris Diaw, and Sean Singletary.[4]

Dudley has one brother Milan Dudley. His mother is Melinda. He attended Horizon High School in San Diego and was coached by Zack Jones under whom he won back-to-back state championships when Dudley was a junior and senior.
