Ha Seung-Jin (born August 4 1985 in Seoul) is a South Korean professional basketball player who has played in the NBA and the NBA D-League. He was a second round draft pick (46th overall) of the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2004 NBA Draft. At 7 ft 3 in, 305 lb, he was among the largest players in the NBA.

Before playing in the NBA, Ha played for Yonsei University and Samil Commercial School in South Korea. Ha arrived in Los Angeles, California, U.S. in 2004 to prepare himself for the 2004 NBA Draft. He played briefly with the Portland Reign of the ABA. [ [http://www.nba.com/playerfile/ha_seung-jin/bio.html NBA.com : Ha Seung-Jin info page ] ] Ha joined the Blazers in the middle of the 2004-05 season. Ha rarely played in games; however, on April 20 against the Los Angeles Lakers, he scored a career high 13 points. During the 2005-06 season Ha was assigned to the NBA D-League's Fort Worth Flyers where he played for five games but did not make an impact. When fellow Blazer centers Theo Ratliff and Joel Przybilla were unable to play due to injury, Ha started four games, averaging 11 minutes playing time.

On July 31 2006, Ha was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a four-player deal.
