Michael Gansey (born December 21, 1982) is an American professional basketball player. He played on for the Los Angeles Clippers on their 2007 NBA Vegas Summer League team. After the summer league was over, he signed a contract for the 2007–08 season with the Italian team Indesit Fabriano. He played college basketball as a shooting guard for the St. Bonaventure Bonnies and the West Virginia University Mountaineers.

The 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m), 188 lb (85 kg) guard emerged as a national star for the Mountaineers during his tenure at WVU. Although it was speculated that he may get drafted as high as late first round in the 2006 NBA Draft, Gansey, along with his West Virginia teammate Kevin Pittsnogle, went undrafted. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Miami Heat in July 2006, and played in summer league games, but was waived before the season. Mike was waived after having a life-threatening staph infection that limited his play.

On September 24, 2008, Gansey was selected by the Erie Bayhawks with the first overall pick in the expansion draft. One of Gansey's brothers, Steve Gansey, played NCAA Division II basketball for the Ashland Eagles, after playing his freshman and sophomore years with the Division I Cleveland State Vikings. He is head of basketball operations for the NBA Development League Team Canton Charge. He is assistant of basketball operations for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
