Garret Andrew Siler (born October 25, 1986) is an American professional basketball player. He formerly played center for Augusta State University. When he went undrafted in the 2009 NBA Draft, he first signed with the D-League's Utah Flash and then the Chinese Basketball Association's Shanghai Sharks. During his one year with the Sharks, he averaged 14.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game on 74 percent shooting from the field.

During the summer of 2010, he played for the New Jersey Nets in the Orlando portion of the NBA Summer League and for the Miami Heat in the Las Vegas portion. For Miami, he averaged 6.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 0.6 blocks while playing for 14 minutes per game for five games and shooting 75 percent from the field. On September 20, Siler was invited to practice for the Phoenix Suns. One day later, the Suns decided to give him a two year contract for the NBA's minimum salary. On January 2, 2011, the Phoenix Suns assigned Garret to the Iowa Energy for 10 games. He was later called back up to Phoenix. The Suns implemented a weight clause for Siler.[1] On January 2, 2012, after a win against the Golden State Warriors, the Suns announced that they waived Garret Siler. Siler was the first Augusta State basketball player to ever play for an NBA team. He also has the distinction of being the only John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School student to play for a major professional sports team.

In 2012, he was named to the Washington Wizards's 2012 NBA Summer League team. He then played for the Jiangsu Dragons in the CBA.[2] In 2013, he joined the Leones de Ponce in Puerto Rico.[3] He was waived midseason.[4]
