Michael David Ruffin (born 21 January 1977 in Denver, Colorado) is an American professional basketball player who is currently a free agent in the NBA. He is a 6'8", 248 lb forward/center.

After playing college basketball at the University of Tulsa, where he studied chemical engineering, Ruffin was drafted in the second round of the 1999 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls. He has played for the Bulls, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Utah Jazz, the Washington Wizards, and the Portland Trail Blazers. He has averaged 1.7 points and 4.0 rebounds per game through his career but is considered to be a defensive presence on the court. He is known for his blocks, hard dunks, and rebounds.

Michael Ruffin committed a costly error for his team in the dying seconds of a March 30, 2007 game against the Toronto Raptors. With his Washington Wizards up 109–106 with 3.8 seconds left, Ruffin intercepted a Raptors half-court inbounds pass, only to heave the ball in the air to try to allow the remaining time left on the clock to run out, but the ball was not thrown high enough and the Raptors' Morris Peterson caught the ball on its descent and made a 31-foot three-point shot with 0.2 seconds remaining to tie the score and send the game into overtime. The Raptors went on to defeat the Wizards, 123–118.[1]

On February 17, 2009, Ruffin was sent to the Sacramento Kings and then to the Portland Trail Blazers for Ike Diogu shortly thereafter in a 3-team trade.[2]
