Winford Gladstone Boynes III[1] (born May 17, 1957, in Greenville, South Carolina) is a retired American professional basketball player. He was a 6'6" (198 cm) 185 lb (84 kg) guard and played collegiately at the University of San Francisco from 1975–1978.[2]

Boynes was the 13th selection in the 1978 NBA Draft by the New Jersey Nets.[3] The Nets had acquired the pick from the New York Knicks, along with Phil Jackson on June 8, 1978 in exchange for the Houston Rockets' 1978 1st round draft choice (Micheal Ray Richardson) and the Nets' 1979 1st round draft choice (Vinnie Johnson).[4] In two seasons from 1978 to 1980, he played 133 games for the Nets, averaging 9.0 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. In 1980, Boynes was made available in the NBA expansion draft in which he was selected by the Dallas Mavericks.[4] He was part of the starting lineup for the Mavs' first NBA game in 1980, in which he top-scored with 21 points in a 103-92 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.[5]
