The Golden State Warriors recently made a choice between either their old or young core.
While the Warriors chose the championship-winning roster of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, they still kept one young player on the roster.
Yes, we are talking about the seventh overall pick of the 2021 NBA Draft, Jonathan Kuminga.
Kuminga has steadily developed into a solid player, and this preseason, he has shown great signs of becoming a future star for the Warriors.
Jonathan Kuminga recently shared his views on his preseason performance via Warriors on NBCS on Twitter.
“It’s a great one,” Kuminga said.

While Kuminga did say the preseason was great, he still admitted there’s a lot of room to grow for him.
Well, considering Kuminga is just 21 years old and only starting his NBA career, he may one day become an elite player in the league.
Last season, Kuminga averaged 9.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game for the Warriors.
For a lottery pick, the numbers can certainly be improved.
But considering he played just 20.8 minutes per game during the regular season, the Warriors will be satisfied with the result.
This season, Kuminga is expected to play more minutes and, of course, average better numbers for the Warriors.NEXT: Trae Young Reacts To Andre Iguodala News
