‘Another concern of GSW’ Forward prospect leaves without more opportunities
Cuminga wants more playing time.
‘The Athletic’ talked about Golden State Warriors forward Jonathan Cuminga on the 13th (Korean time).
Defending champion Golden State had three prospects from the lottery before the season started. 2020 2nd place James Wiseman, 2021 7th place Jonathan Cuminga, 14th place Moses Moody is the main character.
Big man Wiseman, who failed to live up to the expectations of the team, was eventually traded to Detroit without completing the season안전놀이터. The remaining players are swingman Cuminga and Moody. At the time of the draft, expectations were higher for Cuminga than for Moody. With his excellent physical condition and athletic ability, Cuminga has been evaluated as having great potential for improvement in defense.
However, Cuminga was not selected by coach Steve Kerr for every important game. Cuminga, who did not play long in the playoffs last season, suffered the pain of being excluded from the main rotation at all in the playoffs this time through the second round.
In Game 6 of the second round, even though Andrew Wiggins was not in good shape due to a rib injury, Kerr ignored Cuminga. After the first round, news of Cuminga’s dissatisfaction with playing time was indirectly conveyed through reports of locker room conversations in Golden State.
According to The Athletic, Kuminga and Golden State are expected to have serious discussions about his future this summer. It is a situation where Cuminga wants more weight and playing time in the team than now.
“Parties between Golden State and Jonathan Cuminga are expected to discuss Cuminga’s future this offseason. Golden State will have to decide if Cuminga will be given a full-time role moving forward, and if not, Cuminga will be He will want to leave for a team where he can play more.”
Although Golden State is a win-now team centered on veterans such as Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, it is a waste to miss talent like Kuminga. Golden State, which is receiving attention for a fairly busy summer, is expected to stand at a crossroads for the future of Cuminga.
