Devean Jamar George (born August 29 1977 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is a professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA. His position is small forward.

During his college career at Augsburg College, George was named Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference MVP for two consecutive years (junior and senior), and set school records as a senior by scoring 770 points and averaging 27.5 ppg in leading Augsburg to 24–4 record and the NCAA Division III tourney for the second year in a row.

He was taken by the Lakers with the 23rd overall pick of the 1999 NBA Draft, and showed considerable promise, especially by his third season where his hustle, outside shooting, and defense made him a key substitute and he appeared in every single game. The Lakers gave him a contract extension in 2002, but many feel he hasn't lived to his potential. He recently suffered another injury, but as of March 19, 2006, is back on the court again.
