Keith Ramon Bogans (born May 12, 1980 in Washington, D.C.) is an American professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA.

Bogans attended DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland, and was a First-Team All American in his senior year. He was coached by Morgan Wootten, leading DeMatha to a 34–1 record and a number three national ranking in 1999. He was recruited by the University of Kentucky, and was a four-year starter for the Wildcats under coach Tubby Smith. In his senior year at UK, he led the 2002–2003 Wildcats to a 16–0 sweep of the Southeastern Conference and the SEC Tournament title, finishing with an Elite Eight run in the NCAA Tournament. He was an All-American as a college senior when he averaged 15.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.2 steals. He was also 80-for-209 from three. After his sophomore season in which he averaged 17 points and 4.6 rebounds it looked like he may be a future first rounder. His illustrious collegiate career ended as he limped off the court at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. The Wildcats ended up losing to Dwyane Wade's Marquette squad in the Elite 8.

Bogans was chosen in the second round with the 43rd pick in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks, but was traded to the Orlando Magic on Draft Day. Bogans started in half of the games he played in his rookie season, averaging 6.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. Despite his rookie success, the Magic elected to trade Bogans to the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for Brandon Hunter on November 1, 2004.
