Brian Skinner (born May 19, 1976) is an American professional basketball player. A 6'9", 265 lb forward-center from Baylor University, Skinner was selected by the Clippers in the first round (22nd overall) of the 1998 NBA Draft. He has since played for the Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers, the Milwaukee Bucks, Sacramento Kings, Portland Trail Blazers, and the Phoenix Suns in the NBA, as well as the Italian team Benetton Treviso.

Between his stints for the Clippers and the Cavaliers, he was traded to the Chicago Bulls and the Toronto Raptors but never played a game for either team.

He was traded from the 76ers to Sacramento in the deal that sent Kings superstar Chris Webber to Philadelphia. During his stint in Sacramento during the 2004 05 season, he had one of his best career years with a 7.4 points per game average on a 55.4 percent shooting while also grabbing 8.7 rebounds per game. He also recorded a career high of 1.7 blocks per game during that season.

In early 2006, he was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers, who then traded him in the 2006 off-season back to Milwaukee (along with Steve Blake and Ha Seung-Jin) for Jamaal Magloire.

For the 2006 07 season, Skinner averaged 4.4 points and 5.7 rebounds in 22.7 minutes per game.

Skinner and the Phoenix Suns reached an agreement on a one-year deal in September 2007.

On July 31, 2008, Skinner signed with the Clippers, his former team, and re-signed with Los Angeles again the following season. In 2010, he joined the with the Bucks for the third time.

He was released January 5, 2011.

In January 2011 he signed with Benetton Treviso in Italy.
