Tom Sewell (born March 11, 1962 in Pensacola, Florida) is a retired American professional basketball player.

A graduate of Booker T. Washington High School, Sewell played collegiately with the Cardinals of Lamar University for three years, averaging 22.9 points per game as a junior.

Sewell was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 22nd overall pick in the 1984 NBA Draft. The 76ers, eager to offer a long-term deal to Charles Barkley[1] (whom they had selected with the #5 pick they had previously obtained from the San Diego/Los Angeles Clippers) immediately traded Sewell to the Washington Bullets for a 1988 pick (which was later traded back to the Bullets who used it to select Harvey Grant[2]).

Sewell played one season for the Bullets, recording 20 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds, 3 steals, and 1 block over 21 games.
