Freddie Abuda (born October 8, 1969, in Lawaan, Eastern Samar) is a Filipino former basketball player. He was drafted by Purefoods, then known Coney Island Ice Cream, in the 2nd round as the 14th overall pick. Abuda played eleven seasons in the PBA, most of them with the San Miguel Beermen.
Abuda gained the moniker The Scavenger as a large proportion of his points were the result of his scoring on a follow-up after rebounding a teammate's missed shot while playing in the Philippine Basketball Associations (PBA). He began his career as a reserve player for Purefoods and was later traded to San Miguel Beer where he developed into an important role player. His tough defensive and solid rebounding skills contributed to San Miguel Beer gaining multiple championships. He is currently serving as an assistant coach to the San Beda Red Lions of the NCAA Philippines and Barangay Ginebra San Miguel of the PBA.
