3. Ky Bowman
One of the Golden State Warriors’ six rookies this season, Ky Bowman had a strong first season with the team. Initially joining the team via a two-way contract, Bowman’s strong play helped him earn a 3-year deal with the franchise.
Bowman led the charge for the Dubs’ down the stretch of the season. With D’Angelo Russell being traded and Stephen Curry injured, Bowman received a ton of playing time at the point guard position. In the final month before the season was suspended, Bowman averaged 8.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.0 steals.
Though he worked his way to a longer contract with the team, there are still major concerns about his game. He is an undersized 6’1″ guard who has yet to develop a potent jump shot. Bowman shot just 30.8 percent from the 3-point line this season.
His future with the team will rely heavily on if he can become a more consistent shooter. Playing in Chicago will give us a chance to see if Bowman has been working on his shot over the past few months.
