Bruce Flowers (born June 13, 1957) is a former American basketball player. At a height of 2.04 m (6 ft 8½ in) tall, he played as a power forward. Flowers is one of the few American players to have won all three of the different major European titles during his playing era, meaning the Euroleague, as well as the now defunct Saporta Cup and Korać Cup competitions.
Starting his European pro career in Cantù, he helped them win both the Italian League championship and the 1980–81 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 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.
