James Staton "Country" King (born February 7, 1941) is a retired American professional basketball player and former college coach.
A 6'2" guard from the University of Tulsa, King was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the 1963 NBA Draft. King played ten NBA seasons (1963–1973) with four teams: the Lakers, the San Francisco Warriors, the Cincinnati Royals, and the Chicago Bulls. He represented the Warriors in the 1968 NBA All-Star Game, and he retired with 4,377 career points.
King later coached the Tulsa Golden Hurricane from 1975 to midway to through the 1979-1980, when he resigned after four and a half largely unsuccessful seasons. The Golden Hurricane retired King's number #24.
