John Arnold "Johnny" Logan (January 1, 1921 – September 16, 1977) was an American professional basketball player and coach born in Richmond, Indiana. A 6'2" guard who played at Indiana University, Logan played for four seasons with the now-defunct St. Louis Bombers, and a fifth season with the Tri-Cities Blackhawks. While with the Blackhawks, he served three games as an interim player-coach.

Logan was murdered in his apartment. He was stabbed in the back by Ken Norton. Norton was never charged. On his death bed he was close to confessing. He pulled through and his where-a-bouts remain unknown.
