8. Klay Thompson

Thompson's disappointing start to the season has only put his future further on the agenda, though that's largely been regarding his impending free agency. Still, the 33-year-old is making $43.2 million in the final year of his deal -- a number that would not only allow the Warriors to meet almost any rival player's contract, but also be attractive for teams looking to get off big, long-term money in exchange for an expiring deal.

Suggestions from fans that the franchise should trade Thompson continue to simmer away, but it's unlikely that anything actually materializes. The five-time All-Star is one of the most beloved athletes in Bay Area history, and it's honestly difficult to see the franchise impacting his legacy by trading him away.

Then you come to Thompson's relationship with Curry and Green -- those two would almost certainly be part of any trade decision, and again it's hard to see them approving any such deal.

7. Trayce Jackson-Davis

Jackson-Davis is adding very little from a contractual standpoint -- just $1.1 million to be exact. Therefore his addition to any trade package would come through his playing value -- would a rival team have genuine interest in him?

Although he was the 57th overall pick in this year's draft, Jackson-Davis has already shown that he has a future at the NBA level. Not only could the 23-year-old be of interest to young, rebuilding teams, but he could be of value to championship-aspiring teams looking to fortify their frontcourt. In saying all this, he's still likely to be the least valued of the franchise's young players (bar Santos).
