Peter Crawford (born 6 November 1979) is an Australian professional basketball player who currently plays for the Adelaide 36ers of the National Basketball League (NBL). In 2009 and 2010, he played for the Perry Lakes Hawks of the State Basketball League.
At the age of 19, he made his NBL debut for the Townsville Crocodiles in 1999. Crawford played for the Crocodiles until the end of the 2003–04 season. In 2001, Crawford played in the losing side of the NBL Grand Final when the Crocodiles went down to Mat Campbell and Glen Saville's Wollongong Hawks. In his five seasons as a Croc bench player, Crawford played 133 games, averaging 8 points, 2 assists]] and 3 rebounds per game.
When the Perth Wildcats lost their star starting shooting guard, James Harvey, they were looking for someone to fill that spot. New coach Scott Fisher thought Crawford was just the person to do that. In Crawford's first season as a Wildcat, he averaged 16 points, 4 assists and 6 rebounds over 32 games. At the end of the 2004–05 season, Perth signed Crawford on for another two years, after winning the league's Most Improved Player award. In 2005, he ranked first in steals with 2.2 per game, shot 49% from the field and averaged 16.1 points and 6.4 rebounds.
In 2009, he left the Perth Wildcats and signed with the Townsville Crocodiles.
