Rey Francis J. Guevarra (born November 24, 1986) is a Filipino professional basketball player for the Mahindra Floodbuster of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). Guevarra was selected by the Air21 Express third overall in the 2010 PBA draft. He is known for his great athleticism, and is one of the most athletic players in the PBA today, evidenced by him winning the PBA Slam Dunk Contest for three consecutive years, from 2014 (with Justin Melton to 2016.
Guevarra played college for Colegio de San Juan de Letran where he teamed up with future PBA players RJ Jazul and Bryan Faundo. Together, they led the Knights to a Finals appearance in 2007 before losing to rival San Beda Red Lions. On 2009, Guevarra injured his knee after a bad fall after colliding with San Beda center Sudan Daniel, which prevented him from playing with the Smart Gilas in the PBA and prematurely ended his college career.
