Derrick Caracter (born May 4, 1988) is a power forwardcenter for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Caracter grew up in Fanwood, New Jersey. He played high school basketball at St. Patrick High School as a freshman, and attended Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School as a sophomore, to team with fellow SPF native, and subsequent Duke Blue Devil PF, Lance Thomas, before returning to St. Patrick's for his junior year. Caracter transferred to a boarding school, Notre Dame Preparatory School, during his senior year to focus on academics. He then began his college career at the University of Louisville.

He withdrew from the 2008 NBA Draft and later that summer left the University of Louisville. He then enrolled at the University of Texas at El Paso and, as required by NCAA regulations, sat out the 2008–09 basketball season. He became eligible to play in the second half of the 2009–2010 season. On June 24, 2010, Caracter was selected 58th overall by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2010 NBA Draft.
