It looks like Warrior Fans may finally be getting what they want:
Despite many rumors of this happening......there is growing speculation from many Bloggers indicating it looks like Cohan is finally getting to the point where he will sell the Team. As to who? Guess it maybe Larry Ellison ( the suitor-du-jour ).Excerpt from Blog:

The Warriors finally confirmed what has been an open secret for nearly the past year: Chris Cohan is looking to sell the franchise. That’s been painfully clear from the way he’s managed the team’s payroll this last season, but now at least Warriors fans can find a potential silver lining in all that salary dumping. But despite the best reason for Warriors’ optimism we’ve seen in ages, we still have a long way to go before we get to enjoy a post-Cohan glasnos.
The obvious question is whether the Team ( if this what is expected ) would try to have a firesale to clear as many Long-Term contracts owed to Players as possible and what you'd be willing to part with to get anybody worthwhile.
Hypothetically speaking ( yes, insert "The Princess Bride" job here ), the only players that I'd consider would be Turiaf, Monta and Biedrins. I don't know if it could be done or if it's a go enough offer....but I'd consider sending Foster to the Warriors for Turiaf. For Monta? I'd consider sending Murphy's Expiring Contract + 2010 1st round pick ( assuming that it's not a top 5 ). I'd love to have Biedrins....but we already have Hibbert.
Before anyone says the obligatory "See, it was a good idea to save Murphy's huge Expiring Contract while having these huge Expiring Contracts", I'd assume that with many Teams that have copious amounts of Capspace to absorb any contract while not sending back any contract along with a Draft Pick.....any of those Teams would be able to make a better offer than what we could send.
