Frankie J. Sanders (born January 23, 1957) is an American former professional basketball player.[1] After a standout collegiate career at Southern University, in which Sanders averaged 26 points and 10 rebounds per game and scored over 2,000 points in his three-year career, he was selected in the 1978 NBA draft by the San Antonio Spurs as the 20th overall pick.[1][2]

Sanders' NBA career was shortened by self-admitted irresponsible behavior, such as drug use, drinking, and partying too much.[2] He played for three different teams in two seasons despite being a first round draft selection.[1][2] Over the course of his professional career, he played in the Continental Basketball Association (CBA), United States Basketball League (USBL), and overseas in France, Spain, and Venezuela.[2] Sanders won the CBA championship in 1983–84 while playing for the Albany Patroons.[2]
