If they are traded this means that only 2 players (Udoh and Curry) drafted by the Warriors since 2000 will still be on the team! That certainly explains a lot of the troubles for our team...
It is even more abysmal if you just take the past 5 years considering some players spent a decent amount of years with the team.

There were some bad picks and some understandable ones, but lets not forget that was the Cohan era. You can go back to 1998 when the drafted Antawn Jamison. They gave him a big extension and decided to ship him off because Mike Dunleavy was the cheaper option. They did the exact same thing to Jason Richardson with Ellis being the cheaper option. Thats just a cheap SOB like Cohan, unwilling to shell out the cash. The recent worst would have to be 2005 and Ike Diogu. Most mocks had the Warriors drafting Danny Granger at #9. Not only did they pass on Granger but on Andrew Bynum and David Lee. Many may argue that Lee was the last pick of that draft so "passing on him" isn't exactly a true statement, but nearly all scouts and experts, projected Ike Diogu as a late first round pick while a few had him in the early second round.
