Michael Edward Lynn (born November 25, 1945) is a retired American basketball player. He won two NCAA championships at UCLA, then played two seasons in the National Basketball Association.

Lynn, a 6'7 forward from Covina High School in Covina, California, played for UCLA from 1964 to 1968. He won a championship as a sophomore (1965) and again as a senior starter in 1968. Lynn was suspended for the 1966–67 championship year due to legal trouble concerning a credit card reported lost.[1] He was a first-team All-AAWU pick as a junior in 1966.[2]

After his collegiate career ended, Lynn was drafted twice by the NBA – first in the 1967 NBA draft by the San Francisco Warriors (fifth round, #51 overall) and again in the 1968 NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls (fourth round, #39 overall). He played two NBA seasons from 1969 to 1971, his first for the Los Angeles Lakers and his second for the Buffalo Braves. For his career, Lynn averaged 2.6 points and 1.4 rebounds in 49 games.[3]
