Bowman is a veteran of NBA and G-League experiences.

Happy Casa Brindisi is ready to rely on Ky Bowman at point guard, and the class of 1997, a North Carolina native, doesn’t seem afraid to take on the responsibility of leading his new team on the parquet.

His story, in fact, confirms his temperament: having arrived in college with a choice between two sports, basketball and American football, he chose the basketball and will never look back. And not even the disappointment of the 2019 Draft, when none of the franchises decided to select him from Boston College, manages to stop him: in fact, Bowman continues to work and earns the attentions of the Golden State Warriors, who sign him on a ‘two-way contract’ thanks to which he can spend part of the season on the first team and the remaining time of the season in the G-League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors.

Compounded by a series of injuries among the starters (Steph Curry above all), Bowman became the star of Golden State’s season, making 45 appearances including 12 as a starter. “I enjoyed every moment of that experience without thinking too much about anything else,” his words to the American media. “I worked hard every day and night to do my best and the Warriors understood that. I fought to snatch another contract, it didn’t work out that way but I did the best I could and I am grateful for those moments.”

Yep, because with the return of the starters for Bowman, the door to the Warriors closed. After a couple of other brief stints in the G-League came the call from Brindisi: an important square where he could revive his ambitions and be a protagonist.
