NBA Trade Rumors: 4 Golden State Warriors On Trade Block

The Golden State Warriors are in for what appears to be a major roster reshuffling this summer. According to reports, no less than five current members of the team could be on their way out in the coming days and weeks. 

Of course, we've all heard about the stalemate that exists between Klay Thompson and the Dubs. He seems almost sure to bolt in free agency which begins on Sunday. 

But now we have insider Jake Fischer reporting on Yahoo Sports that four other players could be on their way out of town as well in order to free up plenty of cap space and to reconstruct the roster:

Chris Paul

The Dubs have a team option on CP3's $30.8 million contract for next season, and they have reportedly agreed to push back the decision date on the option from today until Sunday in order to give them a little more time to find a good landing spot for the 19-year veteran. 

Kevon Looney

The Warriors guaranteed the big man's $8 million salary for the coming season recently, but according to Fischer, we can consider that a possible "outgoing" contract.

Gary Payton II

He had a player option, and recently exercised it, at $9.1 million for next year. He was a key part of their 2022 title, but since returning from Portland midway through the 2022-23 season, he hasn't had the same impact on the Warriors, largely due to injuries. His $9.1M could be used as trade ballast as well. 

Andrew Wiggins

This contract won't be as easy to move, particularly coming off of the worst season of his career. Wiggins is set to earn an average of $28 million (escalating from $26M in the coming season) over each of the next three years. He put up just 13.2 points this past campaign, five below his career mark, and his 1.7 assists were a career-low as well. The Dubs would love to get off his money.
