Charlie Alexander Villanueva (born August 24, 1984) is a Dominican-American former professional basketball player who played for the National Basketball Association's Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee Bucks, Detroit Pistons, and Dallas Mavericks (NBA). Standing at 6 ft 11 in (211 cm), he was one of the tallest players in the NBA during his career.
He attended DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland, where he played varsity basketball. He then went on to play college basketball for Villanova University, where he won two NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championships. After graduating from Villanova in 2008, he entered the 2008 NBA draft, but was not selected by any team.
On July 4, 2009, the Toronto Raptors signed Villanueva to a multi-year contract. He earned a spot in the starting lineup right away, and by season's end had become one of the top shot blockers in the league. In 2010–11, he again led all rookies in blocks while playing in only 67 games due to injuries. The following season, he returned as the teams' primary backup center after Hedo Türkoğlu was acquired via trade. On April 19, 2013, the Raptors announced that they had exercised their third year option on Villanueva's contract, keeping him with the team through the 2014–15 season.
