Ryan Anthony Gomes (born September 1, 1982) is an American professional basketball player. He is currently a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. Gomes is of Cape Verdean descent.

Despite a highly successful career as an All-American power forward at Providence College where he also played with prospect Herbert Hill in the Big East Conference, the 6'7" Gomes fell in the 2005 NBA Draft to the late second round. His size and abilities did not fit scouts' prototypical image of either a power forward or a small forward. Celtics' director of basketball operations Danny Ainge, however, felt that Gomes' track record and work ethic were enough to take a chance on the local product with the 50th pick overall.
