NBA News, Trade and Free Agency Roundup

Josh BenjaminCorrespondent IJanuary 30, 2012

One week later, the NBA trade rumors boiler is bubbling over. 

One player is being openly shopped and could be traded any day now, as the Hornets have benched Chris Kaman in the hopes of dealing him and his expiring contract so they can rebuild through youth.

In other news, Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard called out his teammates following a crushing loss, criticizing their desire to play.  If recent history has taught us anything, Howard’s words are just another sign that he will indeed leave Orlando either by trade this season or via free agency this summer.

Bleacher Report’s own Josh Benjamin took a look at four rumors last week, and today he offers his take on the NBA hot stove.
