Craig Milford Raymond (April 5, 1945-October 15, 2018) was an American retired professional basketball player.

A 6'11" center from Brigham Young University, Raymond played with Dick Nemelka, Jeff Congdon, and Jim Jimas on BYU teams that competed in the NCAA Tournament in 1965 and in 1966 won the National Invitation Tournament in New York City 1966 National Invitation Tournament. In the championship game he scored 21 points with nearly the same number of rebounds. He was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers with the twelfth pick of the 1967 NBA draft. Raymond spent one year with the 76ers, then jumped to the rival American Basketball Association and played four seasons with the Pittsburgh Pipers, the Los Angeles Stars, the Memphis Pros, The Floridians, the San Diego Conquistadors, and the Indiana Pacers. His ABA highlight was an improbable late-season streak with the Los Angeles Stars all the way to the ABA finals against the Indiana Pacers. In his NBA/ABA career, Raymond averaged 6.9 points per game and 6.3 rebounds per game.[1][2]

Craig was very involved in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints including serving as a Bishop in the San Diego area. He was married to his wife Carolyn Bodily Raymond for 51 years.
