Chukwudiebere Maduabum (born March 19, 1991) is a Nigerian professional basketball player. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the 2011 NBA Draft with the 56th pick overall, but was traded to the Denver Nuggets in exchange for a future second round pick. The future second round pick would later on be traded to the Phoenix Suns due to the team's second trade involving Steve Nash. That pick would then become power forward Alex Oriakhi for the Suns.
Chukwudiebere, a 6-foot-9 power forward, was the third player drafted straight from the D-League, following fellow second round picks Mike Taylor and Latavious Williams. He played for two teams while he was in Nigeria: the Dodan Warriors and the Kano Pillars. He also played in the FIBA Africa Club Championship.
