Brian Bowen is a skilled swingman that can shoot and defend when he is on the court. He will need to be more consistent in games as well as look to pass more, but he is a talented player that possesses intriguing offensive skills.
However, he was not declared eligible to play as he ended up missing a full season of basketball this past year. After having played a year in the NBL, Bowen is a talented player that could end up being a likely second round pick in 2019.
