Bruce Flowers (born June 13, 1957) is a former American basketball player. A 2.04 m (6 ft 8 in) tall forward, he was drafted 26th overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1979 NBA Draft, but only appeared in one NBA season.[1] He is one of the few American players to win all three different European titles, meaning the Euroleague as well as the defunct Saporta cup and Korać Cup. Starting his European pro career in Cantù, he helped them win both the Italian Championship and the 1981 Saporta Cup. Flowers would add the Euroleague title with Cantù in 1982, scoring 21 points in the final against Maccabi, and later captured the Korać Cup trophy with Virtus Roma in 1986.

On February 3, 2008, Flowers was among the 105 player nominees for the 50 Greatest Euroleague Contributors list commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the competition.
