Jaden Edward Dhananjay Ivey was born February 13, 2002 is an American professional basketball player for the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played college basketball for the Purdue Boilermakers.

Ivey grew up playing football, basketball and soccer and practicing karate. He started focusing on basketball as a freshman in high school.

Early in his freshman season, Ivey missed five games with a foot injury.  On January 19, 2021, he made a game-winning three-pointer with five seconds left as part of a 15-point performance in a 67–65 win over Ohio State. As a freshman, he averaged 11.1 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, earning Big Ten All-Freshman Team honors.

Ivey has the tools to be a playmaker on the defensive end but was more aggressive on the ball and steady off of it some possessions than others in his final collegiate season.

The son of former WNBA player and current Notre Dame head coach Niele Ivey and former NFL receiver Javin Hunter, Ivey has a strong athletic pedigree, but he was considered a fringe top-100 prospect in the class of 2020 following his senior season at La Lumiere School (IN).  He exceeded expectations as a freshman in the Big Ten, averaging 11.1 points per game while finishing the year far better than he started it. Ivey has one paternal half-brother, Jordan Hunter.

Ivey provided no shortage of highlight reel plays this season but was substantially more efficient than he was as a freshman.  While he was virtually un-guardable when he had everything going at the collegiate level, his consistency left something to be desired as his ball handling ability and decision-making are still catching up with his electric speed, he was more effective as a passer sometimes than others, and he remained streaky from beyond the arc.  As much as Ivey improved as a sophomore, he still has clear room to continue to grow as his speed gives him considerable potential as a shot creator.
Ivey was selected with the fifth overall pick in the 2022 NBA draft by the Detroit Pistons. He made his summer league debut on July 7 against the Portland Trail Blazers with 20 points, six rebounds, and six assists in an 81–78 win.
