Ricardo "Ricky" Sánchez (born July 6, 1987) is a Puerto Rican professional basketball player who currently plays for Brujos de Guayama of the Baloncesto Superior Nacional (BSN). He has played with the Idaho Stampede in the NBA Development League and the Continental Basketball Association, and in the National Superior Basketball League of Puerto Rico, with the Caguas Creoles, Humacao Grays, Santurce Crabbers, and presently with the Mayaguez Indians, with whom he won a championship in 2012. He was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers with 35th pick of the 2005 NBA Draft, becoming the fourth Puerto Rican to be drafted by the National Basketball Association, and was immediately traded to the Denver Nuggets for their selection, Jarrett Jack.

Sanchez was then traded to the Philadelphia 76ers on September 10, 2007. The 76ers traded the rights to Sanchez on March 15, 2012 for Memphis Grizzlies forward Sam Young. On February 21, 2013, international rights to Sanchez were traded to the Miami Heat for center Dexter Pittman and a 2013 second round draft pick in an attempt to clear roster space for the Heat.[1]

He has been a member of the Puerto Rican National Basketball Team since 2007.

The Sixers focused podcast, The Rights To Ricky Sanchez is named after Sanchez. The Sixers acquired his rights, and later traded them for small forward Sam Young. [2]
