|Mountain West Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year|
|Given for||Most outstanding basketball player in Mountain West Conference|
|Most recent||Malachi Flynn, San Diego State|
The Mountain West Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year is a basketball award given to the Mountain West Conference's most outstanding player. The award was first given following the 1999–00 season—the first year of the conference's existence. As of 2015, no player has received the award multiple times. Two winners of the conference award were consensus national Players of the Year—Andrew Bogut of the University of Utah in 2004–05 and Jimmer Fredette of Brigham Young University (BYU) in 2010–11.
BYU has the most winners with five, with New Mexico and Utah in second place with four. In addition to New Mexico, current conference members with a winner also include San Diego State with three and Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, Fresno State, Nevada and Utah State with one each (BYU and Utah both left for other conferences in 2011). The remaining four all-sports members are yet to have a winner—charter members UNLV and Wyoming, and 2013 arrival San Jose State.
