David A. Stallworth (born (1941-12-20)December 20, 1941) is a retired American professional basketball player.

A 6'7" forward/center from Dallas Madison High School and Wichita State University, Stallworth played eight seasons (1965–1967; 1969–1975) in the National Basketball Association as a member of the New York Knicks and Baltimore/Capital Bullets. He averaged 9.3 points per game in his career and won a league championship with New York in 1970. Stallworth's return to the Knicks in the 1969-70 season was notable because he had suffered a heart attack1 that kept him off the court the two previous seasons. He played in all 82 regular season games as the back-up to Hall of Famer Dave DeBusschere. In 1971, Stallworth was traded along with Mike Riordan to the Baltimore Bullets for Hall of Famer Earl "The Pearl" Monroe.
