Doesn't look as if D'Angelo Russell is doing a good job making friends since coming into the league. Earlier this year the rookie NBA point guard recorded teammate Nick Young, aka Swaggy P, talking about cheating on his then-fiancee Iggy Azalea.


Now Russell's former coach Byron Scott says he doesn't want a relationship with Russell in the wake of finding out that the former Ohio State star blames his inconsistent play on leadership.

TMZ Sports caught Scott out in Los Angeles Thursday night, and the former coach told the gossip site that he doesn't care about anything Russell is saying and isn't looking to be friends with the 20-year-old.
