Travis Marquez Outlaw (born September 18, 1984 in Starkville, Mississippi) is an American professional basketball player currently with the New Jersey Nets of the NBA.

Entering the 2003 NBA Draft directly out of Starkville High School, Mississippi, the 6'9" forward was a first-round selection (23rd overall) by the Portland Trail Blazers. He averaged 8.6 points on 44.2% field goal shooting and 3.2 rebounds per game during his first five years in the NBA.

In the 2005 Las Vegas Summer League, Outlaw averaged 18.7 points and 6.3 rebounds in 35.5 minutes. The performance earned him First Team All-RVSL honors. Following the NBA summer league, several teams offered to trade for Outlaw in exchange for a first-round draft pick. Portland Trail Blazers director of player personnel Kevin Pritchard has said that Travis is "...going to be with us for a long time. I feel comfortable enough to say he's going to be a special player."
