6. Corey Joseph

Joseph's become the whipping boy a little for Warrior fans this season, which is a little surprising given he's been solid in the limited minutes he's played -- a positive plus-minus in nine of his 11 games.

The 32-year-old is perfectly fine as a third-string point-guard, but that role also means Golden State wouldn't necessarily miss him should he have to be included in a trade. Joseph wouldn't hold much value to opposing teams, but if the Warriors needed to match contracts or simply wanted to get off some money, then Joseph's $3.2 million deal may be first in line.

5. Brandin Podziemski

Podziemski has been one of the few bright spots for the Warriors this season, defying all expectation to emerge as a genuine part of the rotation in his rookie season. The 19th overall pick is already one of the franchise's best-performed first-year players in recent memory, so why would they want to trade that away?

The 21-year-old's impression has now made him a genuine asset, one that holds greater value than simply the 19th pick. For a team looking to rebuild and bring in talented young players, Podziemski would be an incredible addition who can help set the tone on both ends of the floor. Golden State will want to desperately retain the do-it-all youngster, but he's by no means untouchable should it mean they acquire a star-level player.
