The Clippers made a roster move on Wednesday morning, signing former Warriors guard Ky Bowman. According to the report, he will compete for a roster spot in training camp.
Bowman, 23, spent his rookie season last year with the Warriors. With a number of injuries last season for Golden State, Bowman was able to earn a solid amount of playing time. He appeared in 45 games, including 12 starts.
In 22 minutes a game, the rookie averaged 7.4 points, 2.9 assists and 1.0 steals per game. He shot only 41.7 percent from the field, including 30.8 percent from deep.
There’s a lot that can still happen in the coming weeks, but I don’t think we can expect Bowman to crack the roster unless he has an amazing training camp. There are still some spots on the roster up for grabs, but you’d have to imagine the Clippers aren’t done constructing their roster just yet.
Nevertheless, Bowman showed some flashes last season, and it doesn’t hurt to give him a shot to see what he’s got.
