Ryan Eugene Stack (born July 24, 1975, in Nashville, Tennessee) is an American professional basketball player who plays for BK Kyiv in Ukraine's First League.

Stack, a 6 ft 11 in (211 cm) forward/center from the University of South Carolina, was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round (48th overall) of the 1998 NBA Draft.

He saw limited playing time in two seasons with the Cavaliers as the backup to All-Star center Žydrūnas Ilgauskas. After playing in just 43 games for the Cavaliers, Stack signed a contract to play in Europe and played for Gijón team from Spain's ACB for the 2000-2001 season.

The next season Stack moved to Israel and was signed by the Maccabi Ramat Gan team.

After the year in Israel he moved to Greece and was signed by Aris Thessaloniki and played there from 2002 to 2006, in all of those years with the team he won 1 EuroCup in 2003 and reached to the ULEB Cup final in 2006. He was then the highest paid centre in Europe.

Stack was signed by Olympiacos BC in August 2006 and played for the team for one season. He then moved to Ukraine and signed with Ukrainian league team BK Kyiv.

While playing for Aris Thessaloniki, he adopted the citizenship of the Republic of Macedonia, so he can play as a European, out of the two non-Europeans per team policy in the Euroleague and Europe. He played for Macedonia in several European and world championship qualifications, and he plays for that national team even today.
