Walter Sharpe is an American basketball player from Birmingham, Alabama. He was selected as the 32nd overall pick by the Seattle SuperSonics in the 2008 NBA Draft. Shortly after being drafted, the Sonics traded his rights to the Detroit Pistons.

Sharpe played his prep basketball at Parker High School in Birmingham, Alabama, and was signed by Mississippi State University. Sharpe's career at Mississippi State had its ups and downs — he was suspended frequently during his freshman season, declared academically ineligible during his sophomore season and eventually kicked off the team. He transferred to the University of Alabama at Birmingham, just blocks away from his old high school, where he averaged 14.2 points per game in 12 games before being declared academically ineligible for the spring semester of the 2007-08 season. Blazers coach Mike Davis said that some of Sharpe's problems could be attributed to narcolepsy, for which Sharpe was diagnosed by UAB doctors.
