Cory Jermaine Carr (born December 5, 1975) is an American-born Israeli basketball player, formerly of the Chicago Bulls and the Texas Tech Red Raiders. After a successful high school basketball career in Kingsland, Arkansas,[1] he went on to play at Texas Tech. During his college career, he scored 1,904 career points and grabbed 411 rebounds. He also made 262 three-point shots.

After being selected in the second round of the NBA Draft in 1998 by the Atlanta Hawks, Carr would play that sole season (the lockout-shortened 1999 season) with the Chicago Bulls, averaging 4 points in 42 appearances.

In 2006, Carr starred on Ironi Nahariya in Israel, having also played overseas in France and Italy. For the 2007/08 season, he represented Elitzur Ashkelon, before moving to Maccabi Givat Shmuel, also from Israel. In March 2011 he returned to Ironi Ashkelon. He spent the season after that with Hapoel Tel Aviv, then signed with Maccabi Haifa B.C. in 2012.[2] [3]

In the beginning of the 2009/2010 season Carr became an Israeli citizen.
