|Pacific-12 Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year|
|Awarded for||the most outstanding basketball player in the Pacific-12 Conference|
|Currently held by||Allen Crabbe, California|
The Pacific-12 Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year is a basketball award given to the Pacific-12 Conference's most outstanding player. The award was first given following the 1975–76 season, when the conference was known as the Pacific-8. There have been two players honored multiple times: David Greenwood of UCLA and Sean Elliott of Arizona. Two freshmen have also won the award: Shareef Abdur-Rahim of California and Kevin Love of UCLA.
The only current Pac-12 members without a winner are the two newest members, Colorado and Utah. Between the arrival of Arizona and Arizona State in 1978 and the entry of Colorado and Utah in 2011, the conference was known as the Pacific–10.

- a For purposes of this table, the "year joined" reflects the year that each team joined the conference now known as the Pacific-12 as currently chartered. Although the Pac-12 claims the Pacific Coast Conference (PCC), founded in 1915, as part of its own history, that conference disbanded in 1959 due to infighting and scandal. That same year, five PCC members established the Athletic Association of Western Universities (AAWU) under a new charter that functions to this day. The Player of the Year Award was not established until 1976, by which time all of the final members of the PCC except for Idaho were reunited in what was then the Pac-8.
