Bruce Flowers (born June 13, 1957) is a former American professional basketball player. At a height of 2.04 m (6 ft 8 ​12 in) tall, he played as a power forward.

Professional career[edit]

NBA[edit]

Flowers was drafted 26th overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1979 NBA draft, but only appeared in one NBA season.[1]

Europe[edit]

Starting his European pro career in Cantù, he helped them win both the Italian League championship and the 1980–81 FIBA Saporta Cup. Flowers would add the EuroLeague title with Cantù in 1981–82, scoring 21 points in the EuroLeague Final against Maccabi, and he later captured the FIBA Korać Cup trophy with Virtus Roma in 1985–86.

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.
