Trenton Lavar Hassell (born March 4, 1979 in Clarksville, Tennessee) is an American professional basketball player currently with the New Jersey Nets of the NBA. He has earned a reputation for being one of the NBA's best perimeter defenders.

A 6'5", 210 lbs guard-forward from Austin Peay State University, Hassell was selected by the Chicago Bulls with the first pick in the second round (30th overall) of the 2001 NBA Draft. During his rookie season with Bulls in 2001–02, he appeared in 78 games, making 47 starts and averaging 8.7 ppg, 3.3 rpg and 2.2 apg. In Hassell's sophomore season in Chicago, he appeared in all 82 games, making 53 starts and averaging 4.2 ppg, 3.1 rpg and 1.8 apg in 24.4 mpg.

Hassell was waived by the Bulls on October 23, 2003 and signed by the Minnesota Timberwolves six days later. He was a regular starter with the Wolves and often took the role of defensive specialist of the team. He was traded to the Mavericks for Greg Buckner on September 28, 2007.[2]

On February 19, 2008, he was traded to the New Jersey Nets along with signed and traded Keith Van Horn, Devin Harris, DeSagana Diop, Maurice Ager, $3 million cash and 2008 and 2010 first round draft picks in exchange for Jason Kidd, Malik Allen and Antoine Wright.[3] In late 2008, Hassell acquired Bell's Palsy and as a result wears goggles when playing.
