Warriors waive Ky Bowman before NBA free agency begins originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Ky Bowman will not be playing for the Warriors when the 2020-21 NBA season begins.

Golden State waived the point guard, the team announced Friday.

The Athletic's Shams Charania first reported the news.

This is not a big surprise, especially when you consider the fact that the Warriors on Wednesday drafted Nico Mannion with the No. 48 overall pick.

Bowman was on a non-guaranteed contract, and parting ways with him now before free agency opens Friday afternoon gives him a head start to find a new team.

The 23-year-old went undrafted in 2019 out of Boston College, and signed a two-way contract with Golden State. The Warriors in early February converted his deal to a standard NBA contract.
