Malik Samory Hairston (born February 23, 1987) is an American basketball player, chosen in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns, who then traded his rights to the San Antonio Spurs. He previously played for the University of Oregon. During his professional career, Hairston has played for the San Antonio Spurs and the Austin Toros, the Spurs' D-League affiliate. He was born in Detroit, Michigan. He is currently playing for Italian and Euroleague club Emporio Armani.
Prior to arriving at the University of Oregon, Hairston attended Renaissance High School in Detroit, Michigan playing alongside fellow all-American Joe Crawford and former Fordham point guard Marcus Stout. His former Oregon teammate, Tajuan Porter, also attended Renaissance High School. Hairston led his high school team to a 27–0 record, the Class B state title and a No. 3 national ranking by USA Today. He was a top 10 rated recruit by virtually every publication and played in the 2004 McDonald's All-America game.
Hairston was an important asset for the Ducks from the moment he stepped on the floor as a freshman. Hairston (along with fellow teammates Maarty Leunen and Bryce Taylor) became three of the eleven players in Oregon history to record 1,000 career points as juniors. Injuries slowed his production in 2006–2007 but Hairston was instrumental to the Ducks' late-season run and Elite Eight appearance in the 2007 NCAA Division I tournament. He scored a career-high 29 points in a 97–88 win over Western Michigan on November 12, 2007, and matched that in an 84–74 win over the Jerryd Bayless-less Arizona Wildcats on January 5, 2008. During his college career he grabbed 12 rebounds on two separate occasions, the first in a 58–56 loss to Stanford on February 26, 2005, and in an 88–54 win over Idaho State on December 17, 2006. He closed out his career with team-highs of 22 points and 7 rebounds in a 76–69 Ducks loss to Mississippi State in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
He was drafted with the 18th pick in the second round (48th overall) of the 2008 NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns (which acquired the pick from the Cleveland Cavaliers as part of a trade for Milt Palacio). Hairston was subsequently traded to the San Antonio Spurs with cash for Goran Dragić. Hairston didn't make the roster at the end of training camp on October 26, 2008, but was re-signed by the Spurs on December 22. Hairston was later released by the Spurs in late July 2010.
