Template:Infobox NBA biography Melvyn Jerome Davis (born November 9, 1950) is an American former professional basketball player.

A 6'6" forward from St. John's University, Davis played four seasons (1973 to 1977) in the National Basketball Association as a member of the New York Knicks and New York Nets. He averaged 5.3 points and 4.3 rebounds in his NBA career.

After taking his basketball career to Europe, where he played in Italy, France, and Switzerland, Davis oversaw the marketing division of Pepsico. Shortly after, he returned to the NBA and began a long career running player programs; orientating rookies and helping players make a smooth transition to the world post-basketball. In 2005, he was personally appointed by David Stern and accepted the position of Executive Director of the National Basketball Retired Players Association.

Davis holds a marketing degree from St. John's, master's degrees in psychology and counseling from Fordham University, and a master's degree in career planning from New York University.
