Free agent guard Ky Bowman has signed a contract with Happy Casa Brindisi in Italy, the team announced on social media (Twitter link). Bowman will play overseas for the first time in his professional career. He most recently played with the Spurs’ G League affiliate and Las Vegas Summer League team.
In addition to holding G League experience, Bowman played 45 games with the Warriors during the 2019/20 campaign. He averaged 7.4 points and 2.9 assists in 22.6 minutes per contest, shooting 42% from the floor and 31% from deep. He turned 25 years old in June.
Here are some other odds and ends from around the basketball world:
- Free agent Javin DeLaurier has signed with ASK Karditsas B.C. in Greece, the club announced (Instagram link). DeLaurier, 6’10”, signed a 10-day contract with the Bucks last season. With Milwaukee’s G League affiliate, he averaged 6.8 points and 8.2 rebounds in 22.2 minutes per game.
- ESPN analysts Bobby Marks, Kevin Pelton and Tim Bontemps (Insider only) examine potential CBA changes, including whether it can prevent issues like what the Nets have faced with Kevin Durant. Durant, of course, requested a trade from Brooklyn this offseason with four years left on his contract. Former Sixers star Ben Simmons did the same thing a year ago, which led to a lengthy standoff before he was traded in February. The NBA and NBPA have until December 15 to choose whether to opt out of the current CBA, which would expire on June 30 if at least one side decides to do so.

You can plan on an opt out.
I actually hope the owners lock them out and put an end to this crap.
I don’t think Max Contracts should be traded. So when you sign it you know where you will be and the team does not offer if they don’t want you. Take a dollar less and pay and day less tells you that it may happen.
Agreed. Max contracts especially where you’re getting the biggest deal because you signed with your original team should be tied to staying with that one team.
Every single NBA player is overpaid. They want pick and choose when to play and if it goes south, they request trade and run riots.
I won’t watch this circus no more until the owners regain control and we get rid of load management and fake injuries. With that being said, I reckon that the regular season needs to be shortened so we can avoid back to back games. This will reduce injury risk and make it more easier for fans to follow the games.
