Arthur Donnell Long (born October 1, 1972) is an American former professional basketball player from Rochester, New York. A 6'9", 250 pound power forward out of the East High School and University of Cincinnati who also attended Independence Community Junior College, Dodge City Community College in Kansas and Southeastern Community College in Iowa, Long was not drafted but both the Portland Trail Blazers and Sacramento Kings signed him as a free agent in 1999, though he was waived before ever playing a game for either. He eventually played nine games with the Kings from February 2001 until the season ended. He spent the majority of his college and pro career at power forward and center but as a high schooler, Long displayed the ability to put the ball on the floor and play small forward.
