William Edward Perdue (born August 29, 1965 in Melbourne, Florida) is a retired American NBA basketball player.

Perdue attended Merritt Island High School, Merritt Island, Florida.[1] He then played basketball at Vanderbilt University, where he was named Southeastern Conference Player of the Year and SEC Male Athlete of the Year in 1988.[2] He was selected by the Chicago Bulls with the 11th overall pick in the 1988 NBA Draft. Between 1991 and 1993, he won three championships with the Bulls, mainly as a backup to center Bill Cartwright. He became a regular starter during the 1994–95 NBA season, during which he averaged 8.0 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. However, the emergence of Luc Longley made him expendable, and before the next season's training camp, the Bulls traded him to the San Antonio Spurs for Dennis Rodman.[3] Perdue did win his fourth NBA championship with the Spurs in 1999.[4]

In August 1999, Perdue rejoined the Chicago Bulls as a free agent. He started 15 of 67 games for them in 1999–2000, averaging 2.5 points and 3.9 rebounds. After the 2000 season, Perdue left Chicago and signed with the Portland Trail Blazers, where he averaged 1.3 points, 1.4 rebounds and 4.5 minutes in 13 games.[4] He averaged 4.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game over a thirteen-year career.[5] He is now an ESPN radio analyst.[6]
