Clippers tellingly fire analyst who criticized Kawhi Leonard

Report: Bruce Bowen out as Clippers analyst after Kawi Leonard criticism

The Clippers have opted not to renew analyst Bruce Bowen's contract after the critical comments he made over Kawhi Leonard, ESPN.com reported.

"I think what you're starting to see now is an individual given a certain amount of advice, and it's not the right advice". "First, it was, 'Well I was misdiagnosed.' Look here: You got $18 million this year, and you think that they're trying to rush you?"

Leonard reportedly wants to play for either the Los Angeles Lakers or Clippers, depending on who you talk to, so releasing Bowen was in the best interest of the team.

"I think he's getting bad advice", Bowen said. Are you kidding me?...

Sports news outlets are reporting that longtime Spur Bruce Bowen, who retired from the National Basketball Association in 2009, is out of a job due to his comments about Leonard back in June. "Bowen declined comment when reached on Monday", Wojnarowski elaborates.

He spent 12 seasons in the National Basketball Association, eight of which were with the Spurs.

"We're also providing you a famous private parking spot for all of your honest & insightful player analysis & assessment capabilities", a tweet from the San Antonio Zoo read.

ESPN reports that the move is a clear message that the organization will protect star players.

The Clippers are a franchise that will be vying for Leonard's services come 2019, when he will become a free agent after playing a season for the Toronto Raptors.

The Clippers could have the salary cap space available to sign two max contract free agents in 2019, and could try to recruit Leonard and another star on max contracts.

Bowen was hired by the Clippers to serve as a color commentator for the team's broadcasts alongside Michael Smith during the 2017-'18 season.

Leonard was born in Los Angeles and played college basketball at San Diego State, so it wouldn't be a shock if he took his talents to Southern California next summer.
