With a 17-20 record, the Golden State Warriors are in the type of dire straits they haven’t been in for many years.
A number of their key players are struggling, and recently, that has even included Steph Curry, whose outstanding play this season has greatly leveled off.
Many fans are hoping they will pull off a major trade that will give them that proverbial shot of adrenaline and nutrients, but the problem is that the struggles their players are enduring are hurting their value on the open market.
In fact, Brian Windhorst, via Basketball On X, says forward Andrew Wiggins and big man Kevon Looney have “next to zero value.”

Just two seasons ago, Wiggins was an All-Star starter for the Western Conference, and he played a big role that season in the Warriors’ most recent NBA championship.
Several years ago, he was thought of as a low-efficiency chucker while with the Minnesota Timberwolves, but since coming to Golden State four years ago, he has remade himself into a two-way player.
This season, however, he’s shooting just 41.8 percent from the field and 29.8 percent from 3-point range.
Meanwhile, Looney has developed into a good rebounder and hustle player over the last few years, but he is limited in just about every other facet of the game.
In addition, Klay Thompson, who is a huge part of their old guard, isn’t what he used to be, and he’s in the final year of a huge contract, which would make moving him hard to do.
There simply isn’t any easy fix for the Warriors, and it looks like their dynasty is dying a slow, painful death.
