     This year's NBA off-season will be the busiest of all-time. There are so many stars who are without a contract, and many others who are said to be on the trade block. The following are players who have been rumored to be on the move, and my guess on where they will end up.


LeBron James

     Every team is interested in him, and it will ultimately come down to what he thinks is best for himself. I personally think he will end up with the New York Knicks. He will love being in the Big Apple, and he will thrive in a big market team. Wherever he goes, I'm sure another star will follow him.

Dwyane Wade

     This is pretty much already a sure thing; Dwyane is staying in Miami. The fans love him, and most importantly, he loves it there. He already has stated that he wants to be with the Heat, so expect him to stay.

Chris Bosh

     He hasn't given too many hints about where he plans on going, but I know he is friends with LeBron. My guess: a sign and trade with the Knicks. If LeBron doesn't sign with them, that changes everything as I can't see Bosh playing in NYC without LeBron. Only time will tell.

Chris Paul

     The Hornets have been talking about trading him, and he says that he is open to a trade. Still, I expect the Hornets to come to their senses and realize that he is the player that they need, and he can lead their team for years to come.

Amare Stoudemire

      He can put up huge numbers, and dominates in the paint. I see him going to Chicago. He's not their 1st choice, but he would be a nice fit. Amare and Derrick Rose on the same team would lead to playoff berths, and chances at an NBA championship.

Joe Johnson

     Joe Johnson could easily be the most underrated player in the NBA. There are many different options for him, but I see him staying with the Hawks. He is already the face of that franchise, and I see it being that way for a long time.

Dirk Nowitzki

     Dirk is getting older, but hasn't stopped producing. He will get a huge contract, but the question remains, with who? I think he will stay with the Mavs. He is their franchise player, and a leader of that team.


     There are lots of other players who will be on new teams next season, but if I try to guess any more, my head will explode. No one knows for sure where all these guys will end up, but one thing is for sure, it will be great to watch it all sort its self out.


Where do you think these guys will end up?? Feel free to comment below!
