Timothy D. Perry (born June 4, 1965) is an American professional basketball player, formerly in the NBA.

Following a college career at Temple University, Perry was selected seventh overall by the Phoenix Suns in the 1988 NBA Draft. Through eight NBA seasons, he averaged 6.8 points and four rebounds per game. Charles Barkley claims in Sir Charles: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles Barkley that the Suns had to trade Perry to Philadelphia in 1992 because he was #34, Barkley's number. Perry appeared in three NBA Slam Dunk Contests, finishing 5th in 1989, 7th in 1993, and 5th in 1995.

Perry later became an assistant coach for Holy Family University, Pennsylvania of the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference in NCAA Division II.[1] In 2011, he received a degree in liberal studies from Neumann University.[2]
