Olumuyiwa "Olu" Famutimi (born February 21, 1984) is a Canadian professional basketball player who is currently playing for the Halifax Rainmen of the National Basketball League of Canada.

Famutimi was first noticed in a high school game at Chaminade College School in Toronto, Ontario, in his freshman year. Less than a year later, he transferred to Flint Northwestern High School in Flint, Michigan. In Michigan, he played for the Flint Northwestern Wildcats and climbed the national ranks as the seventh best player in the country, according to ESPN.com. A career altering injury would change all of that, as he was ushered out of the limelight because of it.

Famutimi played two seasons at the University of Arkansas, where he earned All-Southeastern Conference Freshman honors. In 57 games with the Razorbacks, he averaged 8.3 points and 3.9 rebounds in 22.2 minutes per game. Against all conventional wisdom, he declared early for the 2005 NBA Draft and was not selected.

Famutimi was invited to training camp with the Philadelphia 76ers and made appearances in four preseason games (4.5 ppg, 2.0 rpg) before being waived. He played 47 games for the Arkansas RimRockers in 2005-06, and averaged 6.8 points and 2.7 rebounds in 16.5 minutes per game while shooting .513 (122-238) from the field. Famutimi signed with the San Antonio Spurs as a free agent in 2006, but was waived before the season started.

He plays internationally for the Canadian national team.

He played in Turkey for two years and also played in France, Germany and Ukraine.

On December 17, 2013, Famutimi signed with the Halifax Rainmen of the NBL Canada.
