The Golden State Warriors suffered a disappointing loss and elimination from this year’s Playoffs. The Los Angeles Lakers were able to win the series in six games, sending the defending champions packing in the second round. This was the first time the Warriors lost a Western Conference series under Steve Kerr. Although the core of the team looks set to continue fighting for another championship, it seems like some of Stephen Curry’s teammates may find a new home in the offseason.

Draymond Green has a player option in his contract this summer and is being reportedly pursued by LeBron James’ Lakers. So, after their loss, the Warriors defensive leader asked the Baby-faced Assassin, “What are we supposed to do now?” To that, Curry was clear as to where his focus was, saying, “I’ve got to figure out Mother’s Day now,” as per reports from The Athletic. But even after their loss, there is a huge question surrounding the Warriors’ young forward, Jonathan Kuminga.

Kuminga is set to showcase his talents in three cities, including Miami, New York, and Los Angeles. Kuminga impressed everyone in the limited minutes he got against the Lakers.

However, he did not get much playing time to make a bigger impact. So, he is looking to increase his trade value by showcasing his talent. If Kuminga does not get a bigger role with the Warriors, he may as well seek a trade soon.

Parting ways with Jonathan Kuminga may be the least of the Warriors’ worries. The team may have to sever ties with Draymond Green this offseason as well. Green has played with the Warriors since the start of his NBA career.

However, his altercation with Jordan Poole at the start of the season may play a big part in the Warriors’ decision not to bring Green back to the team. Also, Golden State’s front office has to make a big decision surrounding Klay Thompson.
