Sunday Salvacion (born December 17, 1978) is a Filipino professional basketball player. He last played for the GlobalPort Batang Pier of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). He plays the small forward and shooting guard positions.
Known as a scorer during his college days, Salvacion, who was a former NCAA Most Valuable Player has evolved into a solid defender and a clutch shooter that placed him in the regular rotation of the Barangay Ginebra Kings. Salvacion (which when translated in English means "salvation") is one of the best shooters the PBA has produced.
Known to elevate his game during the playoffs, Salvacion's contribution was more evident during Ginebra's championship runs on the 2004–2005 and 2006–2007 Philippine Cup where he proved to be one of the key players.
On September 12, 2014, he and Jason Ballesteros were sent to Blackwater Elite in a three-way trade involving NLEX Road Warriors and Meralco Bolts. NLEX obtained Blackwater's 2016 and 2017 2nd round pick along with the draft rights for Juneric Baloria. Meralco received Sean Anthony from NLEX via Blackwater as third party.
In September 2015, Salvacion was signed by the Pacquiao Powervit Pilipinas Aguilas (now the Pilipinas MX3 Kings) of the ABL as one of the team's local players. However, in December 2015, Salvacion, along with Emmerson Oreta, Charles Mammie, Chad Alonzo, Jondan Salvador, and Adrian Celada were released by the Pilipinas MX3 Kings after a roster overhaul.
