Ernest Maurice "Kiki" Vandeweghe III (born August 1, 1958 in Wiesbaden, West Germany) is a retired American professional basketball player and was the previous general manager and head coach of the New Jersey Nets of the NBA.

Vandeweghe is the son of former NBA player Ernie Vandeweghe and Colleen Kay Hutchins, the winner of the 1952 Miss America pageant. He is also the nephew of another NBA player, four-time All-Star Mel Hutchins. He has a niece Coco Vandeweghe who is a tennis player on the junior circuit. Kiki and his wife Peggy have one son, Ernest Maurice Vandeweghe IV, who was born in 2002.

As a player, Vandeweghe was regarded as an excellent scorer and outside shooter, averaging 20 points for seven consecutive seasons. His offensive repertoire was essentially limited to a single move, the jab step, but he was so proficient at this lone move that it was often referred to as the "Kiki Move" toward the end of his career. Vandeweghe's teams qualified for the NBA Playoffs in 12 of his 13 seasons in the league, although none of his teams ever won the NBA Championship.
