Anthony Jordan "A.J." Price (born October 7, 1986(1986-10-07)), is an American professional basketball player at point guard for the Indiana Pacers of the NBA. He was born in Orange, New Jersey and raised in East Massapequa, New York.

Price attended Amityville Memorial High School, where he led the Warriors to three straight Long Island Championships and state titles in his sophomore and junior seasons. As a junior (2003) he averaged 25.4 points, seven rebounds, five assists and three steals. His numbers continued to increase as a senior; he averaged 28.5 points and eight rebounds. He finished his three-year career with 130 career three-pointers and 1,394 career points. He was a two-time Newsday Suffolk County Player of the Year.

Price chose UConn over Florida State, Kansas and St. John's. He missed his freshman (2004-2005) season after a life-threatening battle with AVM, which caused bleeding in his brain. He underwent radio-surgery treatment in February 2005 and spent more than 14 months recovering from his illness. It was not until May 2006 that he received clearance from his doctors to return to the court.
