Richard Wayne Dumas (born May 19, 1969, in Tulsa, Oklahoma) is a retired American professional basketball player.

Dumas, a 6'8" small forward from Oklahoma State University, was selected with the 46th pick of the 1991 NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns. During the 1991-92 season, however, Dumas was suspended from the NBA for violating its substance abuse policy.[1] Dumas played in Israel for Hapoel Holon during his suspension. His rookie campaign commenced 19 games into the Suns' stellar 1992-93 season, averaging 15.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game while helping the team to a league-best 62 wins and an NBA Finals appearance. Because of his performance during his first season in the NBA, Dumas received NBA All Rookie Second Team honors.

Following a stint in rehab, he returned in 1995 to the Phoenix Suns, averaging just 5.5 points in 15 games in his final season with that team. Under the influence of head coach John Lucas, Dumas concluded his brief NBA career with a season with the 76ers, averaging 6.2 points in 39 games.

He then continued his professional career overseas, for Gymnastikos S. Larissas in Greece, Pekaes Pruszkow (1998–99) in Poland, as well as for the Westchester Wildfire of the United States Basketball League.

Dumas retired from basketball in 2003.[citation needed]
