NBA Players Who Desperately Need a Fresh Start with a New Team
USA TODAY Sports

In the NBA, even some of the most talented players in the world are often in need of a change of scenery and a fresh start with a new team.

Whether it's because the player no longer fits with the personnel around him or with the greater direction of the team, flipping a new page and starting elsewhere is sometimes the only thing that can revive a career.
