Paul R. Neumann (born January 30, 1938) is a retired American National Basketball Association player.
He was selected in the 4th round of the 1959 NBA Draft by the Syracuse Nationals. He played two seasons with the Nationals, and remained with the team as it moved to Philadelphia and was renamed the Philadelphia 76ers.
In 1965, he was traded at mid-season along with Connie Dierking and Lee Shaffer to the San Francisco Warriors for Wilt Chamberlain, a trade that is frequently cited as an example of a star player (in this case, Chamberlain) being traded for far less than he is worth.
He played two more full seasons with the Warriors before retiring in 1967.
