Paul V. Cloyd was an American basketball player. Born in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, he played collegiately for the University of Wisconsin. He was selected by the Washington Capitols in the 1947 BAA Draft. Cloyd, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound guard-forward, began his professional career with the National Basketball League's Sheboygan Red Skins during the 1947-48 season, when he finished second on the team in scoring to NBL rookie of the year and league first-team pick Mike Todorovich with 555 points in 60 games. In 1948-49, he scored 336 points in 56 games for Sheboygan, which finished with a 35-29 record and advanced to the NBL playoffs. After the NBL merged with the Basketball Association of America on August 3, 1949, Cloyd played for the Baltimore Bullets and Waterloo Hawks in the NBA for seven games. In 1950-51, Cloyd became player-coach of the Kansas City Hi-Spots in the ill-fated National Professional Basketball League, an organization that dissolved after one season. He led the team in scoring with 243 points in 23 games, but he relinquished his coaching duties on December 4, 1950.
