Jack Kevin Haley (born January 27, 1964 in Long Beach, California) is an American former professional basketball player. A 6'10" forward/center from Huntington Beach High School and UCLA, Haley spent nine seasons (1988–1992; 1993–1998) in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Chicago Bulls, New Jersey Nets, Los Angeles Lakers, and San Antonio Spurs.
Haley was a member of the 1995-96 Bulls team which won a league-record 72 games and the NBA Championship, although he only played in one game during the regular season and did not participate in the playoffs. He was mainly known for his friendship with Dennis Rodman, and was sometimes referred to as Rodman's "babysitter". However, Haley bristled at the label, and argued that he had legitimately earned his spot on the team.
Following his playing career, Haley served as an assistant coach for the New Jersey Nets and as a television broadcaster for the Lakers, co hosting the Lakers Live pre game show with Bill Macdonald for Fox Sports Net West/Prime Ticket. Haley has also acted, appearing in the films Eddie and Rebound, as well as the music video for Aerosmith's "Love in an Elevator."
