The contract Bruce Bowen as a television analyst with the Los Angeles Clippers won't be renewed due following comments that were critical of Kawhi Leonard.
Bowen was under contract with Fox Sports West, but the Clippers have significant input into the hiring of broadcasters.
"I think there's nothing but excuses going on," Bowen told Sirius XM Radio on June 22. "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? You didn't play for the most part a full season this year. And you're the go-to guy, you're the franchise, and you want to say that they didn't have your best interest at heart? Are you kidding me?"
The decision is believed to be related to the Clippers' expected pursuit of Leonard in free agency in 2019.
