Ronald D'Wayne Price (born June 21, 1983 in Friendswood, Texas) is an American professional basketball player currently playing for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association.

At 5-foot-8, Price was considered undersized as a senior at Clear Brook High School, located approximately two miles northeast of Friendswood, Texas. Because of his lack of height, Price was not offered any basketball scholarships after graduation. He walked-on at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana. He grew to 5-foot-11 by the beginning of his freshman season and surprised many people by averaging 11.3 points per game. He continued growing to his current height of 6-foot-2, but he felt the situation at Nicholls State was not right for him. He transferred to what was then Utah Valley State College (now Utah Valley University) in Orem, Utah.

As a sophomore (2002–03), Price averaged 15.3 points per game, earning Honorable Mention honors in the NJCAA Region 18. UVSC became a four-year institution the following year, and Price decided to stay as the school transitioned to NCAA Division I basketball. He improved his scoring average to 20.2 points per game as a junior (2003–04), leading the Wolverines to the Division I Provisional National Championship. The Wolverines finished the season with a 23–5 record. Price scored a career-high 37 points in a game twice during the season.
