Roderick Dwayne "Rod" Higgins (born January 31, 1960 in Monroe, Louisiana) is an American former professional basketball player who currently serves as general manager of the National Basketball Association's Charlotte Bobcats.

A 6'7" forward/center from California State University, Fresno, Higgins played 13 seasons (1982–1994) in the NBA as a member of the Chicago Bulls, the Seattle SuperSonics, the San Antonio Spurs, the New Jersey Nets, the Golden State Warriors, the Sacramento Kings, and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He averaged 9 points per game and 3.6 rebounds per game during his career. After his playing career ended, Higgins served as an assistant coach with the Warriors until 2000, when he was named assistant general manager of the Washington Wizards. He was re-hired by the Warriors on May 20, 2004, joining former teammate Chris Mullin in the team's front office.

On May 31, 2007, he was hired as the second General Manager of the Charlotte Bobcats, replacing Bernie Bickerstaff. Although Higgins has the title of general manager, he serves primarily in an advisory role to Bobcats part-owner Michael Jordan, who has the final say in basketball operations.
