John Edwards (born July 31, 1981 in Warren, Ohio) is an American professional basketball player who is currently playing for the Iowa Energy of the NBDL.

Edwards played collegiately for Kent State University. While at Kent State, Edwards was part of two of the Golden Flashes' trips to the NCAA tournament which included their appearance in the 2002 Elite Eight. He was named MAC Defensive Player of the Year in his final season and holds the Kent State record for season and career blocked shots.

He was invited to the Indiana Pacers' training camp in 2004. Mainly due to his size, and some unexpected injuries to the Pacers' big men early in the season, he was the only free agent training camp invitee to earn a spot on the main roster. Even so, he was expected to be released as soon as the Pacers got healthy, but the rash of suspensions resulting from the November 19, 2004 brawl at the Palace of Auburn Hills enabled him to remain on the team. As a result of this and other injuries to the bench, the Pacers were only able to dress six players and Edwards constituted the team's entire bench.

During the summer of 2005, Edwards signed with the Atlanta Hawks and during the 2005-06 NBA season he averaged 8.6 minutes per game.

On August 22, 2006, Edwards was traded back to the Pacers, along with Al Harrington, in exchange for a 2007 first-round draft pick.[1] He was waived in preseason, and split time with two NBDL teams in 2006-07. The following season, also during preseason, Edwards was waived by the Minnesota Timberwolves, signing in November 2007 with Cherkassy.
