Sergei Alexandrovich Monia (Russian: Сергей Александрович Моня, born April 15, 1983) is a Russian professional basketball player for Khimki of the VTB United League. He was selected by the NBA club the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2004 NBA Draft. He is a 2.02 m (6 ft 7 1⁄2 in) tall guard-forward.
On February 23, 2006, Monia and Seattle SuperSonics' center Vitaly Potapenko were traded to the Kings in exchange for power forward Brian Skinner (who ended up with the Trail Blazers) in a three-team deal. Monia saw action in only three games for the Kings and was waived on July 28, 2006, because of his desire to play professionally in the Russian Superleague A for Dynamo Moscow.
In June 2010, Monia signed a two-year deal with Khimki. With them, he won the Eurocup in 2012. In June 2012, he extends his contract with Khimki for two more years. On March 6, 2015, he signed a new three-year contract extension with Khimki.
