Michael Edward Curry (born August 22, 1968 in Anniston, Alabama) is an American basketball coach and former head coach of the NBA's Detroit Pistons. Curry was hired June 9, 2008 to replace fired Flip Saunders. Curry also played in the National Basketball Association from 1993 to 2005.

A 6'5" guard/forward from Glenn Hills High School in Augusta, Georgia, and Georgia Southern University, Curry played eleven seasons (1993–1994 through 1995–2005) in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, the Washington Bullets, the Detroit Pistons, the Milwaukee Bucks, the Toronto Raptors and the Indiana Pacers. Though he never averaged more than 6.6 points per game in a season, Curry was well respected throughout the league for his strong defense and leadership qualities, and for several years he served as president of the NBA Players Association.

He played also in the German 1st Basketball league for the team Steiner Bayreuth (1990–1991), in Italy for Clear Cantù (1994) and in the Spanish ACB for Valvi Girona (1994–1995).
