By Marcus Thompson II, MercuryNews.com : Team and league sources confirmed Tuesday that the Warriors have included second-year forward Anthony Randolph's name in trade discussions.
Golden State once exalted Randolph as the face of the young, promising core around which the franchise was to be built. But in just under a season and two months, Randolph has gone from possible draft-day coup to the Warriors' latest trade bait.
One team source said the Warriors aren't necessarily looking to get rid of Randolph but are willing to trade him if doing so would improve the team.
That's what happens when you're 7-17 and have lost seven of your past eight games — the last defeat being to a team, the Philadelphia 76ers, riding a 12-game skid.
Randolph was deemed the starting power forward in the offseason and was invited to participate in Team USA's training camp in Las Vegas after a dominant summer league.
But one Eastern Conference executive said Randolph's stock is down around the league.
Teams are concerned about his play and effort, the source said, and they think he spends too much time on the perimeter (not everyone sees him as a small forward). His talent is obvious, the source said, but Randolph is closer to seeking a big payday after his rookie contract expires than he is to realizing his jaw-dropping potential.

The San Fransisco Chronicle reports that the Warriors have inquired with Toronto about a possible trade for Chris Bosh , and also with Phoenix about the possibility of landing Amar'e Stoudemire . However, it looks as though the Warriors struck out on both proposals.
The story quoted a source as saying there were no serious trade talks going on between the Warriors and the Suns or Raptors, despite confirmation that the Warriors had reached out to both teams. The source further added that it looks unlikely that the Warriors will complete a trade by Feb. 19.

The Charlotte Observer reports that the Golden State Warriors have spoken to the Charlotte Bobcats about the possibility of bringing Raymond Felton to the Warriors. Two possible scenarios have the Bobcats trading Felton to the Warriors in exchange for Anthony Randolph or Brandan Wright.
Bobcats GM Rod Higgins would "neither confirm nor deny" speaking with the Warriors about Felton.
If the Bobcats do not trade Felton this season, they risk losing him without getting anything in return when he becomes a free agent this summer.
