Golden State Warriors may finish the regular season with a different look and may see D’Angelo Russell and Alec Burks on their way out of the roster.

With injuries continue to mess up Steve Kerr’s rotation, Reports from SFGate said that ESPN’s Brian Windhorst believes that the Warriors should get rid of Russell’s contract to get other set of players to carry the team – and getting rid of his contract means additional money to sign other players.

"I don't like that contract … it's possible his value may never be higher than it is currently. ... Do the Warriors trade him come January?", " Windhorst said. He also added that the 28-year old Burks is the one that is most certainly can be traded due to his minimum salary.

The 2015 NBA Draft’s 2nd overall pick signed a four-year $117 million in a sign-and-trade with the Brooklyn Nets. He averaged 21.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and seven assists last season for the Nets en route to him being named as a first-time all-star. They look at Minnesota and Detroit as possible destinations of the braided guard.

Bleacher Report reported that the Wolves are already considering to bring Russell to the helm as they already started looking for options just to make room for D’Lo’s salary. With their guards Jeff Teague and Shabazz Napier, they do not have a point guard that they can pair up with Karl-Anthony Towns in the long run and they see the Ohio State alum to be that guy.

It is also possible to look at getting multiple player trade Denver for Juancho Hernangomez and Michael Porter, Jr. Hernangomez’ is playing only nine minutes a game in the two games that they played this season but is a solid presence when he is on the floor.

Porter, Jr. is playing his first season this year and has played in two games, averaging nine points and four rebounds in 14 minutes per game. He was a highly touted young talent but was overlooked by most teams because of his back injury and with also recovering Bol Bol on the team who plays the same position as him, he can certainly get his minutes and opportunity with the Warriors.

The team should also consider the fact that two of their young players in Ky Bowman and Damion Lee are in a two-way contract, meaning they have to spend the rest with Santa Cruz Warriors in the G-League after 45 days. Considering this option can also help fill the slots that will be left by their two-way players while adding length to their lineup.
