8. Kevon Looney
Kevon Looney may never be a star in the NBA, but there is great value for a big man that knows his role. During his time with the Golden State Warriors, Looney has become just that. He is a big man that plays the exact role that Golden State needs him to play. Coming off the best season of his career, Looney averaged seven points and nine rebounds on 63 percent shooting from the field.
With two affordable years ($17.5 million total) remaining on his contract, Looney would easily be one of the most sought-after big men on the trade market if the Warriors wanted to test his value. At just 27 years old, Looney may not even have played the best basketball of his career yet either.
Considering the Warriors traded James Wiseman away at this past year’s NBA Trade Deadline, it would be surprising if Looney was not on this team next season. But in the event that the team needs to lessen the cap hit (perhaps due to a couple of contract extensions that they may give out this offseason), Looney immediately becomes someone they probably look to trade first.
