The inner workings and relationships within the Golden State Warriors have been the subject of much speculation recently.
It all started last summer when Draymond Green and former Warrior Jordan Poole got into an altercation during a practice session.
Now Green is at the center of more strife.
According to Monte Poole, via NBA Retweet, Green and Jonathan Kuminga are not seeing eye-to-eye.
Poole’s report reads:
“[Draymond Green & Jonathan Kuminga’s non-relationship] is a problem and it can only be fixed by Draymond. The new contract implies the Warriors believe he can fix it, but around the league there are a lot of people saying ‘I don’t know.'”
There’s not much of a relationship if any between Draymond Green and Jonathan Kuminga, per @MontePooleNBCS

It’s not clear why Green and Kuminga have had a falling out and it’s also not clear if the team has done anything to fix it.
And based on this report, it seems like fixing the fractured relationship might not even be possible.
If that’s the case, what’s next for these two?
Green just re-signed with the Warriors, while Kuminga has been spoken about as both a possible future leader for the team or a trade asset.
This obviously isn’t the first time that Green has butted heads with a teammate and it might not be the last.
Chris Paul has just joined the team and Green has publicly noted his dislike of that iconic guard.
Perhaps the Warriors’ front office will step in and do whatever is necessary to fix the problems between Green and Kuminga…and prevent any future ones between Green and Paul.
Green has always been an outspoken player with a prickly personality that rubs some people the wrong way.
He’s never been afraid of getting into it with other players.
But this new trend of him not getting along with his own teammates is troubling for the Warriors.NEXT: Former Warriors Player Claims Draymond Green Also Tried To Hit Him
