Barry Wayne Stevens (January 17, 1963 – February 21, 2007) was an American basketball player. He was born in Flint, Michigan. Stevens was the second-leading scorer in Iowa State college basketball history.[1]

Stevens, a 6'5" (1.96 m) shooting guard, played professionally as well; briefly for the NBA's Golden State Warriors during 1992-93 season. Stevens played six total NBA minutes in two game appearances with the Warriors. He also played in Asia, South America and Europe.[2]

From June 2001 to June 2002 he was both the director of basketball operations and head coach of the CBA's Gary Steelheads, lasting one season.

In February 2007, Stevens died of a heart attack[1] while exercising in Gary, Indiana, aged 44.[3] A celebrity all-star game was played in July 2007, in order to raise money for the Barry Stevens Foundation and the American Heart Association.[1]
