Richard Wayne Dumas (born May 19, 1969 in Tulsa, Oklahoma) is a retired American professional basketball player.

Dumas, a 6'8" small forward from Oklahoma State University, was selected with the 46th pick of the 1991 NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns. During the 1991-92 season, while suspended from the NBA for violating it's substance abuse policy[1], Richard Dumas played in Israel, in Hapoel Holon.

His rookie campaign commenced 19 games into the Suns' stellar 1992-93 season, averaging 15.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game while helping the team to a league-best 62 wins and an NBA Finals appearance.

Following a stint in rehab, he returned in 1995 to the Phoenix Suns, averaging just 5.5 points in 15 games in his final season with that team. Under the influence of head coach John Lucas, Dumas concluded his brief NBA career with a season with the 76ers, averaging 6.2 points in 39 games.

He then continued his professional career overseas, for Gymnastikos S. Larissas in Greece, Pekaes Pruszkow(1998/1999) in Poland, as well as for the Westchester Wildfire of the United States Basketball League.

Dumas retired from basketball in 2003.
