Edward "Ed" Gray (born September 27, 1975) is an American former professional basketball player who was selected by the Atlanta Hawks in the first round (22nd overall pick) of the 1997 NBA Draft.

Gray began his college career at the University of Tennessee, spent his sophomore year at the College of Southern Idaho (a junior college) and eventually transferred to the University of California, Berkeley. He was awarded the 1997 Pac-10 Player of the Year during his senior season at Cal averaging 24.8 ppg.

Gray's rookie season with the Hawks was marred by injuries, as well as suspensions for missing medical appointments.[1] In March 1999, he was arrested for DUI and drug possession.[2]

During the 1999 offseason, he was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers. He was traded two months later to the Houston Rockets. He never had a chance to play for either team.

Gray ended his NBA career averaging 6.2 points, 1.2 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 60 games with the Hawks.
