Jamal Wesley Sampson (born May 15, 1983) is an American former professional basketball player.
A power forward/center, Sampson is the cousin of the 1983 NBA draft's number one overall pick Ralph Sampson. He attended the University of California, Berkeley where he played only one season before being selected by the Utah Jazz in the second round (47th overall) of the 2002 NBA draft. He was then traded along with Ryan Humphrey to the Orlando Magic for Curtis Borchardt. The Magic then traded Sampson to the Milwaukee Bucks for Rashard Griffith.
After barely playing with the Bucks, Sampson was signed by the Los Angeles Lakers, appearing in only 10 games. He was later selected by the Charlotte Bobcats in the expansion draft in 2004, and signed as a free agent with the Sacramento Kings in 2005–06. On July 28, 2006, Sampson signed with the Denver Nuggets and played a further 22 NBA games.
Sampson was waived by the Dallas Mavericks on October 22, 2007 during the NBA preseason.
