Dexter Jerome Pittman (born March 2, 1988 in Rosenberg, Texas) is an American basketball player for the Miami Heat.

Pittman was a three-year starter at B. F. Terry High School, where he averaged 15 points and 8.5 rebounds per game over his career. In his senior season, he was named the Most Valuable Player for District 24-4A. He verbally committed to the University of Texas in October 2005, over scholarship offers from Texas A&M and Arizona State. He was ranked as the 16th best center prospect out of high school, as well as one of the top 150 high school players in the nation.

Pittman was used sparingly in his first two seasons at Texas, averaging less than 3 points per game with just one start. As a junior, he started 24 games–averaging 10 points and 5.5 rebounds per game–and became one of the most dominant centers in the Big 12 conference.
