Anthony "Tony" Campbell (born May 7, 1962) is a retired American NBA basketball player.
Campbell played high school basketball at Teaneck High School in Teaneck. A 6'7" small forward out of Ohio State University, Campbell was selected 20th overall by the Detroit Pistons in the 1984 NBA Draft. He was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in 1987.
Campbell became the first player to earn an NBA ring (1987-1988 Lakers) and CBA ring (Albany Patroons) in the same season.
Campbell struggled for playing time during his stint in Los Angeles. The Lakers allowed him to be selected in the 1989 expansion draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves for whom he averaged 23.2 points and 5.5 rebounds per game in their inaugural season. He held the Timberwolves' original all-time scoring record, scoring 4,888 points, before having his record later broken by Doug West.
After his time with the Timberwolves, Campbell played for the New York Knicks, Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers before leaving the NBA in 1995.
As of 2007, he is the Director of Athletics and head basketball coach at Bay Ridge Preparatory School in Brooklyn, New York.
